Maybe the firmware or something Apple uses to setup the drive in the factory.

Can you eject it and use another disk?

Meh, sell it in the marketplace here. You'd get more for some kind of Apple junk like that here than ebay.

I don't know I haven't gotten it yet. But I am assuming the disk he's talking about is firmware or diagnostic tools Apple uses in the factory.
