Good Evening,
I'm Running SS 2.3.20091025 with MacOS 10.6.2., with MacOS 8.5 installed within SheepShaver. Is it possible to mount a USB thumb drive, so it's visible within SheepShaver? Thanks.

Hi,

Yes, there might be a way, provided the USB disk is formatted with a type of partition Mac OS can understand. It might also be the case you only have read-only access:
-Mount the USB drive in OSX. Open disk utility, select the USB drive partition (the first indented entry in the list below the name of the USB drive) and click Info.
-Mark the name of the disk (something like "disk1s2")
-Open a terminal window and type "open .sheepshaver_prefs"
-Just below the last "disk" entry add: disk /dev/"disk1s2" (replace the part between "" with what you found in disk utility)
-Save the .sheepshaver_prefs file and start SheepShaver.

Please note, that if you also use e.g. an external disk on and off, the name of the USB disk found in disk utility can change.
Another note: if you have an entry saying cdrom /dev/disk1 (so having the first part of its name in common with what you found in disk utility, you should temporarily remove the text after "cdrom" (but remember what was there. To get cdrom support back, you'll need to add it again later.)

Best,
