    Hi Everyone,

    Running OSX 10.8.5 on Macbook Pro 2012.

    I have my iTunes library on an external drive and I was wondering if anyone knew a way to automatically launch iTunes whenever I connect that drive.

    You should be able to do this with the controlapp

    TM uses the inbuilt launchd process so I know it's possible to replicate that for your needs too but you would have to research which script to copy and edit

    Here if you want to do it yourself :

    You want free gem called Do Something When. It does exactly what you're looking for.

    The app hasn't been updated in over half a decade, mind you, but it still works perfectly with Mountain Lion. Wizardry! No word yet on Mavericks, but I've been using it since Lion so I've got my fingers crossed...
