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 ddrescue)
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 it's default behavior is to automatically mount each zip floppy to the /Volumes folder, which is fine, except it uses the volume's name as it's 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.
