    Hello all,

    Swapped out the OEM 80GB HDD in a late 2006 MacBook with a 320GB Seagate 2.5" HDD. I used carbon copy to clone the original, booted up from the new HDD from an enclosure, and swapped the HDDs when it booted up fine.

    After swaping the HDDs, I noticed a file called "CodeDirectory" opening up automatically on start-up with text edit. The text was some weird symbols with the only legible text being "Pcom.apple.iokit.IOSCSIFamily".

    Everything else appears to be OK other than this auto "pop-up" upon start-up. I'm able to just close the file but if there is a way to get rid of this, I'd be happy to.

    Thanks!

    Check under :apple: -> System Preferences -> Accounts -> Login Items. My mother had a similar problem where a library folder was opening on startup, and it turned out that it had somehow been added to that list.
