Maya trying to access my cd rom drive on Macbook Pro
on Dec 12, 2009 at 7:02:15 pm

Almost everytime i try to access an object in Maya it tries to access my cd rom drive. I am running Os x 10.5. Anyone have any ideas. Of course i get the beachball and my computer kinda glitches. It is seriously slowing down my workflow. Any help will be greatly appreciated

What, specifically do you do when you "try to access an object in Maya". I'm not sure what that is.

Do you select a poly mesh by clicking on it in the viewport, do you select File->Create Reference... from the main menu?

Please be as detailed as possible.

while Maya is running open a terminal and take a look at what files Maya is trying to access with fs_usage

sudo fs_usage -w -f filesys

I don't see Maya trying to access the DVD drive in this log file. Did you notice Maya attempting to do so?

That's not quite what I meant. I wanted to know what you observed while running the test.

If I look at the log file, I don't see any application making any attempt to access the drive while you were running fs_usage. Did you notice that while you were running fs_usage, something still tried to access the drive, even though it didn't show up in the log file?

Hello. Do anybody solved this problem. I checked fs_usage and I didn't notice nothing special. This is very annoying. Please any help. Thanks
