Need a clue or diskEvt - Mac Programming

When inserting a CD, a floppy or ZIP disk containing an external file system while my application is running, I don't want the dialog saying "You have inserted a disk containing no volumes the MacOSX can read..." The diskEvt does no longer exist for the Eventmanager in MacOSX. That could be used in pre carbon apps. But can't be used anymore. So I need some other strategy than diskEvt. Any clues what that might be? Terje...

    You can get disk notification events via Carbon events. I'm not sure if
    that allows you to intercept disk mounts, but it might.

    No, it does not. Carbon Events are send if new Volumes are mounted not
    before. The only thing I'm aware of is DiskArbitration. The source is in
    the darwin stuff.
