From time to time, I've mended the contents of removable media.
During that process, I've used the 'drives' object(s) to display the
The plural 'object(s)' means I've used either or both of the Drives
object in the System folder and the Drives 'shadow' in the WarpCenter.
Sometimes they do _not_ give the same result.
For example, once I had the WC 'Drives' come up stuttering, with error
msgs, and showing "(no objects)"; while the System folder 'Drives'
came up with a perfectly good blank window, and no stuttering.
This has happened when there were files on the media as well. The WC
shadow 'Drives' says "(no objects)", while the System folder "Drives"
shows everything correctly.
This has happened (only) with a SCSI CD-R/W drive and a parallel port
ZIP drive. Anyone else seen something like this?
The 'shadow' object should work like the original, right?
What is The Cosmic Meaning of this?
