    Hold down the eject key on your keyboard? Start the DVD player and hit the Eject button on it's virtual remote.

    As a last gasp if you cannot eject any other way reboot and hold down the mouse button as soon as the chime sounds.

    ...or drag the DVD icon on your Desktop it to Trash in the Dock (which will change into an Eject icon)... Edit: Like bense27 said... :)

    ...or mark the DVD (in finder) and press cmd-E...

    thx ok sorry but i just got home from school and opened our new imac, i didnt even see the button on the keyboard, i guess im still trying to get used to OS X and this mouse with no right click

    **************
    why does it say "disc not supported" when I enter any dvd?

    you can change it so there is a right click if you want

    go to system prefs>keyboard&mouse> and then you can mess around with the buttons...make the one of the right say "secondary" and the one on the left say "primary" if you want it to be most like your old windows mouse.

    You did not just call it a "recycle bin," did you? :(

    WRONG!

    You drag it to the Trash.
    This is Mac OS, not Windows.

    The council will convene and get back to you within 72 hours to see what punishment to dole out for that error.

    It will probably involve buying a new iPod to show you've learned your ways. ;)
