    I am trying to build an automator workflow, it basically should work like this:

    Folder (with a bunch of items and sub folders inside) burned to cd/dvd
    eject cd
    weed out certain files (bt having certain words in the name) from folder
    create archive
    move archive to certain server
    delete original folder.

    problems i am having:
    the cd/dvd is always name "My Disc" even though it asks me to name it, how can I have automator name the cd the same as the folder i am burning?

    I have no idea how to have it delete files who's name contains "native.eps" or "proof.eps" or "dig.eps"

    it prompts me to name the archive and where to save it, how can i set it to name the zip the same as the original folder and save it to a certain directory automatically?

    thanks gang! :apple:

    i am getting most of this to work, but the naming of the cd/dvd is wacked. it prompts me to name the cd/dvd and i do, but when it burns the disc it names it "My Disk"

    if I can get this to work then this will be usable while i work on the finer points....anyone have a work around for this?
