    Is there a command key for the MAC that will eject a DVD from the slot drive?

    I'm a day old owner of a MAC MINI and to eject I have been using the remote to actually go into the program and select "eject disc"...wondering if there is a faster way...

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, you have to have the disk icon selected before keying Apple + E which can be a pain if you've got a bunch of windows open. There's also the eject key at the top right of Apple keyboards...

    I also use Ejector. Very handy and will unmount and eject drives that Finder says are busy when they're not.

    Because it gives you a drop-down choice of all drives, including flash keys and iPods. :cool: x 2 ;)
