We have Disk Arbitration ON/OFF tools available for your convenience in our Files section. They run on Snow Leopard and Leopard and make turning Disk Arbitration On and Off as easy as a double-click.
Snow Leopard and Leopard
Disk Arbitration for Snow Leopard and Leopard is controlled thru launchd. launchctl is the controller that sends the commands to launchd. The following will shut off Disk Arbitration on a Macintosh running Leopard.
sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.diskarbitrationd.plist
Change "unload" the "load" to turn Disk Arbitration back on.
Above, Activity Monitor shows us that diskarbitrationd now runs under the parent process of launchd.
Disk Arbitration is Tiger is controlled through the removal or addition of a PList file in the appropriate directory.
I HOPE YOU MADE THE BACKUP in the first command!
To turn Disk Arbitration back on, copy the original file back to its original location
Reboot your system and Disk Arbitration is now on.
