Enable connection to network drive at startup
  

Hello,

I'm new to mac for a month and a half. I have a mac mini connected to a wired network drive WD MyBookWorld who do Nas. To access the videos from Front Row I created aliases of files in the folder Nas videos mac mini. So it works very well with Front Row but one detail: after starting, Nas wakes up (15 seconds) but in Front Row I do not see my aliases. I have access to records once the nas by the finder to locate them.

I have already done a tour in the user account options with the application to activate at startup. When I put an action that points to my NAS folders , it opens the finder above to start but certainly not very good and the "hide box" checked does not mask anything.

A setting in the NAS time machine could do something?

Thank you for your help.

Hello

You start your network drive

you drag the disk icon in the "startup" under "Account" in System Preferences

it should do, right?

mount the network disk

"mount the network disk" Are you saying this?

The disc MyBookWorld appears in the sidebar of the finder (it is also a MBW file backup for time machine perhaps?). In fact it also gives me a message at startup saying that the disk is no longer connected because the disk must wake up I think.

Re: Enable connection to network drive at startup

There is a very Mac can easily connect a network drive at startup, just follow these steps:
  • First mount the network drive
  • Open up the "Accounts" in System Preferences
  • Drag the mounted drive icon from the desktop to the login items.

It's that simple!

Re: Enable connection to network drive at startup

Perform the following steps:
  • Choose Finder, then go into the menu bar. Select "Connect to Server ..."
  • Enter the location of the network drive and click Connect.
  • After the disk is mounted, it should appear on your desktop. Open System Preferences, choose Accounts
  • Then, select your user account, then the Login Items tab.
  • Select the network drive that is mounted on your desktop and drag the window to Login Items in System Preferences-> Accounts.
  • Check the Hide box if you do not want the player window mounted in the Finder to open on every boot
