Using the "/Volumes" way of opening the file worked!
I ran into one issue - some of the filenames have unicode characters in
them. I searched the list and found this solution from Bjornke:
put unidecode(uniencode(tVar,"UTF8")) into tFilename
That makes things work whether the file name has unicode characters in it
This, of course, is using pre-7.0 technology. Ou of interest, if I used
7.0 how would I set about translating a string with unicode characters in
it into a form acceptable as an OSX filename?
In answer to your thought about sandboxing, I'm doing exactly the same as
iTunes - accessing music files in the ~/Music/iTunes folder so I assume
they would be within the app's sandbox.
