Make mounted disks appear in the Dock.

Overview

DockDisks is an unsupported hack that causes disks to auto-mount in the Dock. This can be handy if you want to put your dock on the right side of the screen but want to avoid the conflict for space with the disk icons on the desktop. It can also help avoid the problem of desktop icons becoming covered up by open windows.

DockDisks is a hack, and as such it is obviously not perfect. The main caveat is that the Dock is quit and relaunched when the list of disks is refreshed, because the Dock has no API for adding/removing items, and thus has to be relaunched to refresh its settings. However, DockDisks does do its job, which is to put your disks in the dock.

What's new in DockDisks

Version 1.0b5.2:
  • DockDisks is now unsupported
  • Removed the expiration date

Serge's tip doesnt work multi-partitioned HDs as the Dock can only hold 2 partitions if the HD itself is partitioned in 3 or more. Workaround is make an alias of the HD partitons, drag them to the Dock, and put the aliases in your Documents folder. You might want to remove the Alias arrow via a tip at macosxhints.com. Giving each HD partiton an individual ikon helps too

You can also put alias of your disks on the dock and hide them via the preferences.

Although I liked the idea of this program, it does seem to have some problem with Panther. My computer slowed down, and started freezing during intensive activity.

I've always loved the idea of having CD's and disc images show up in the dock, but the fact that this has to recycle the dock any time a volume is mounted and/or ejected stinks. Apparently it's a limitation of Apple's dock. Boo. Oh well, A-Dock handles this same kind thing quite nicely.

This Software is real cool. You can click the docked drive and you can easily navigate through the contents of the drive ... I dragged my Home folder and my Application Folder into the dock to get the same cool navigation. Only problem, when you insert a CD and have minimized windows in the dock, they all get thrown out of the dock ...
