mount ejected disk, back up to disk image

Hi all,

I've been using SD! for a while now and am very pleased with it but I can't figure out how to do one particular thing.

I need to back up one large folder from an external HD to a disk image on another external HD. The backup disk, I don't want it mounted all the time because it's loud. I just want it to mount, mount the disk image, back up what's new and then eject the disk.

I have a shell script that mounts the disk fine but doesn't seem to do anything when I set it to run before copying.

Any ideas? I'm thinking of just using iCal to run an applescript to mount the disk a few minutes before I have it scheduled to backup.
