    I can not get Norton Anti-Virus to stop scanning my drives on mount (iPod, Thumb Drive, Disk IMG, and Floppies). If someone could help Post or IM me PLEASE. I will be at my computer the rest of the night and almost always!

    If you're running Norton on your Mac, then the solution is to delete it. You don't need it anyway.

    If you have the Norton menu bar icon, click on it and under Autoprotect, you can turn Scan On Mount off. Otherwise, you can go into System Prefences, and again under Norton Auto-Protect you can turn off Scan On Mount, of just turn off the progress bar if that is what is bothering you.

    Both of those items are covered pretty fully in the manual..
