Using Mac OS X 10.4
I made a script a while ago for my Linux box in order to take archived data off of 300 floppies that automated the process. I would make an image of the floppy and copy the files directly off of the floppy. I managed to install Xcode on the machine (in order to install
The thing is on a Linux box I mounted each floppy to
/media/floppy and unmounted it to
ddrescue it and copied it directly to a usb drive.
I'm trying to port my script to the Mac, and it seems that its default behavior is to automatically mount each zip floppy to the
/Volumes folder, which is fine, except it uses the volume's name as its mount point folder name. So if a floppy's volume name is: "Jimmy Bo Bobs" it will mount to
/media/Jimmy /Bo /Bobs.
So my question is I need to get the volume name either consistent to one name, or adaptable to the volume's name.
So my initial question is can I some how mount a drive to a specific folder, Like I would normally do in linux?
#Linux mount /dev/sd1 /media/floppy #Mac diskutil mount /dev/disk1s1 /media/floppy #Doesn't work
If it's not possible, is there an easy way to extract the volume's name so that I can then link the script like this?
Volumename=Jimmy Bo Bobs do stuff to /Volume/$Volumename
I'm guessing if it's not possible I'll have to grep the
mount command to the
/dev/ pointer and then somehow parse that string which is what I want to avoid since it would require even more research.
