It will even be automatically mounted if needed when the folder is browsed in Silver Screen. To make the alias, mount the server or other disk in the Finder, locate the folder containing the movies and Command-Option-drag the folder's icon into your Movies directory.

DealBITS Drawing: Parallels on USB Drive from Small Dog

Send Article to a Friend

A year ago, I might have needed to explain this week's DealBITS drawing in more detail. But a year ago, virtualization - the capability to run Windows and other PC operating systems on an Intel-based Mac - was just getting started, and Parallels Desktop hadn't yet become the must-have application for anyone who needs to use Windows applications on a Mac.

This week's drawing is a bit unusual, since the prize - from Small Dog Electronics - is a copy of Parallels Desktop on a 512 MB Kingston USB drive, worth $69.99. Entrants who aren't among our lucky winners will receive a discount on it from Small Dog, so be sure to enter at the drawing page. All information gathered is covered by our comprehensive privacy policy. Be careful with your spam filters and challenge-response systems, since you must be able to receive email from my address to learn if you've won. Remember too, that if someone you refer to this drawing wins, you'll receive the same prize as a reward for spreading the word.
