    I've got an external HD hooked up to my iMac and it has some software on there that brings up a CD icon on the desktop.

    Is there a way to hide just that specific icon?

    I know you can go to Finder and uncheck so that it doesn't show CD/DVD icons on the desktop...but that would mean anytime I pop in a CD it wouldn't show up and I don't want that, just want to hide the specific App icon.

    The best and easiest way to do it is to create an AppleScript app from the code below: (just set diskName to the name of the drive)

    Code:
    tell app "System Events" to set visible of disk diskName to false
