On my Mac, I frequently use USB flash drives that only have one vital folder on them. For example, the drive which I use for transferring video files from my Mac to my PS3 only holds the VIDEO folder. Is it possible to bypass the clicking and searching of such drives to access automatically only the folders which I use on a regular basis?

Yes, I think you can add an Alias/ Shortcut on the Dock or as a Stack, which directs to the Folder.


I have done this with a NAS drive, but be aware if you click the link without the USB drive attached obviosuly it will cause an error.

I'm familiar with this process, but I was hoping to do something more clean (id est, behind the scenes); in Apple Script, for instance.
