    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.

    Thanks

    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

    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...
