    Hi there,

    I've got an external FireWire CD-RW drive attached to my Power Mac G4. I'd love to use a keyboard shortcut to open up this external drive instead of having to manually open it every time by physically touching its eject button. Of course, whenever I hit the eject key on my keyboard, my internal SuperDrive opens up. But I'd love to hit something like OPTION-EJECT to eject the external drive. Does anyone know of any way to do this?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Click on the EJECT icon in the sidebar.

    doesn't the menu action 'Eject' able you to eject via the menu bar (though that might just be for internals).
