every time i hook up my external hd to my macbook, iphoto starts up and thinks my external is basically a digital camera. needless to say it's annoying to have to quit iphoto every time. anyone know a way to make it stop?
It seems that when you plug the drive the system detects images on it and assumes it's a camera. In the iPhoto preferences there's an option labled "Start iPhoto when camera is connected" or something to that effect. Turn it off.
Sorry can't tell you more precisely, since I'm currently at work with my PC laptop.
