Dvd wont eject in windows 7

i installed windows 7 ultimate. 64 bit into my early 09 unibody macbook pro (2.66, 4 gig, 512 mb 9600gt)

everything works fine, but when i go to eject my snow leopard, it will not eject by either pressing the button or by right clicking the icon in my computer. it will say "an error occurred while ejecting dvd rw drive (d windows support"

anyone know what this is? i cant really find anything on this.

i had that happened to me, reboot into mac os x... eject the CD... then you can reboot into 7 and install all the drivers. You should be set.

I've had this same problem on my MacBook with Windows 7 x64, did you fix it?

I ended up writing a console app to eject the tray from the quick launch bar. I can send you a copy if you pm me.
