    I am new to automator and am trying to get it to do the following:

    read from CD drive each time a new disc is inserted

    then find files containing xxxx

    copy those files to folder xxxx

    eject disk

    I have the last three down but my problem is getting it to read from the cd drive each time. Here is a screen shot of what I have....

    The very first drop down menu "where" is where I would need to set it but there has to be a specific cd in the drive. If you replace it with a different cd, it does not find the files. Any idea how to make it read from any cd or DVD in the drive?? Thanks!

    Try 'Asking' for files and folders. You should be able to save the finished workflow as a droplet, which you can then drag and drop the inserted CD onto.

    I'm not at my Mac at the moment so I can't try it myself.
