    Is there a way to make a symbolic link my my main DVDROM drive?
    I know how to do a folder, as that's what I did to get to my external HD from my windows machine (aren't I clever ;) ).

    But I don't want to have to create a seperate one for each CD I put in.

    I don't think there's a one-step way to do this. When a cd/dvd gets mounted, each one has a different mount point within the /Volumes directory.

    One could probably write a background script/program that recreates a symbolic link at a specified directory every time a cd/dvd is mounted.
