I am trying to write a simple ApplesSript to run a command in terminal which is needed a workaround for an incompatibility problem with a certain Imation storage drive and Mac's running 10.8.2. I would like the script to do the following 1. Launch Terminal 2. Type the following command "sudo chmod +r /dev/rdisk*" 3. Wait for the user to enter their password which will be required. 4. If possible close after the password is entered or if that is too complicated just leave terminal open and the user can close it themselves. I have no experience with AppleScript (obviously based on my question), but based on postings online I thought the following would work but it does not. tell application "Terminal" activate do script "sudo chmod +r /dev/rdisk*" delay 1 end tell Can someone assist me with this please? Thank you.
