Any USB drive, any format.How is this external formatted?
It is possible (apparently) not going to name the vender who say that they can do this (PM if you want to know. I don't want to advertise) & I will be checking out the software this week.How would you make a FAT drive read-only in OSX - its not possible, so I don't think you can do that with a thumb drive
They might be mucking with how it's being mounted.It is possible (apparently) not going to name the vender who say that they can do this (PM if you want to know. I don't want to advertise) & I will be checking out the software this week.

Looked at a demo of some software & it is possible (& does work, just tested it) to make external USB drives no matter what format they are read only on a MAC. Love to know what witchcraft they are using to do this.
The client I'm working for will be happy to pay for the software/hardware its not cheap. As you pointed out doing this is not something I would have been happy doing with a "Micky Mouse home made script" either. To be honest I thought it could not be done due to the way OS X works we live & learn.Without knowing the price of the software, it's hard to say if it's worthwhile. If it was a few bucks, or even maybe as much as $20, I'd probably pay for it rather than me trying to puzzle out how it's done, and possible breaking things or destroying data in the process.
