I am unfortunately a complete novice with Applescript. I would like to write a script that mimics the behavior of a folder icon in the Finder. So that if I save it as a compiled app:

(1) if I drag a file to the app, it moves the file into a folder pre-specified in the script (call it "~/Desktop/My\ Folder") and

(2) if I just double-click on the app, it just opens that folder in Finder.

My attempts to create something, modeled on scripts I see online, are not working out. Would very much appreciate help — thank you!!

(Invoking Automator would also be fine.)

I have an issue with applescript. When I make a simple script to open DVD Player, I only hear the audio from TS files, no video. If I open DVD Player directly, everything is fine.
