I wrote an applescript that does everything i want on the startup drive. It takes the selected files, processes them, and renames them. But so far, I have not been able to get it working on my external drive. I believe it has something to do with the path. On the internal startup drive, I used a path like "Macintosh HD:Users:username:desktop:file.txt" and it works fine. How can I use this on the external drive? Using "Volumes:Hard Drive:Files:file.txt" doesn't work. neither does replacing the : with /. Any suggestions?
