DropDMG Automater and over 500 DVD/CD's


I was wondering if anyone could help me or point me in the right direction?
I’m trying to set Automator on my Mac Pro to create a .dmg file every time I load a DVD or CD of all my archived work/projects using DropDMG.

Many thanks,

Andy Lowe

I’m not aware of a good way to do that automatically. I don’t think either Automator or AppleScript has a trigger for when a disc is inserted. Perhaps there’s another automation utility that can do this (and then invoke DropDMG via AppleScript). The way I would do it is to insert the disc and then drag it onto DropDMG’s window or Dock icon.
