    So I just loaded up the new MBP and plugged my external in to pull some stuff off. My trash can instantly filled up with everything that is on my external. Whats the deal?

    Maybe because Steve doesn't want you to taint your new device with trashy porn.

    Maybe it is the stuff that has been put into the Trash before you connected it and it is still in there, as the trash folder for every volume is on the same folder. So if you remove an HDD with some files in the Trash, but have nothing in the Trash from your internal, your Trash icon looks like there is no Trash. Just when you reconnect that HDD the Trash icons shows you that there is still something in the Trash.

    So in short: OPEN YOUR TRASH AND SEE WHAT FILES ARE IN THERE.

    Don't worry thats a feature built into OSX. Did the drive have windows files on it? It's supposed to do that.
