    i recently changed the mac hard disk icon from appearing on the desk top. i bought a external hard drive recently and that puts a icon on my desktop also. i forget how to stop it from doing that, does anyone know how ?

    on my MBP running 10.4.10, my external drive (connected via FW400) will show up even if "hard disks" is unchecked. to prevent external drives from showing up, i'd have to uncheck "connected servers".

    You would think that wouldn't you?

    To get external drives to bugger off you need to uncheck 'cds dvds and ipods'.
