I am using the "mxj filebrowse" (https://cycling74.com/twiki/bin/
view/Share/TopherLafata) to brows an external HD (firewire). So far
so good. "mxj filebrowse" returns a path like this (for the selected
file): "Macintosh HD:/volumes/peiman 120 GB/sounds 2007_08/ICE/lic
I am trying to use this path to read a file into buffer~. But it
seems that for an external HD, buffer~ only accepts a path like this
(I don't know what this style is called!):
"peiman 120 GB:/sounds 2007_08/ICE/lic pot 2.aif"
I.e. the external HD is read as the top level of the path rather than
"macintosh HD:" (followed by /volumes/ etc...). I have tried using
conformpath but it doesn't make any difference. Is there anyway
around this problem?
I have been searching the net for an answer for some time but I
haven't managed to find a way yet. I would very much appreciate any
