    I have seen a few threads regarding apple scripts that can copy the contents of a CD to the desktop; however, I'm truly struggling with this. Can anyone help explain (in some detail) how you would automate the copying of a data CD to a desktop? My preference would be to (1) create a folder with the CD name, (2) copy the contents of the CD to the newly created folder, (3) eject the CD when completed.

    Any thoughts on how to do this? I have 200+ CDs that I need to copy; therefore, any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    The CDs contain data files with various file extensions (e.g. PDF, DOCX, etc.). Many of the CDs contain both Files and Folders. What I want is the entire contents of the CD to be copied. Any thoughts?

    If they're just CDs with normal data on them, I'd just drag and drop the contents to a folder. You'd barely be saving any time having a script do the same thing, I'd think.

    The problem is I have over 200+ CDs. It would be better to have a scrip handle it for me.

    I have seen that before, however, how do I use it? I mean, do I create this in Automator?
