    Not as stupid as it looks. I put a blank CD in it so I could burn a few things, then I decided not to. So I dragged the "Blank CD" to the trash can and it didn't show the eject sign, it just put it in the trash can. So, I emptied it, and it never ejected the disc and the disc is not showing that it's in the drive. Even after I restarted it, it's not showing up, thus the Mac Mini won't eject it because it thinks there's nothing in it. Forgive me if it's a simple fix. Thanks!

    have you tried opening the hd folder, selecting the disc in the peripherals menu, and pressing the eject button on the window toolbar?

    Try restarting while holding down your mouse button.

    It doesn't show up anywhere on my Mac.

    OK I will try that after I get done burning on it (if that's what it's doing). I found the files I wanted to burn so I used Automater to try and manually burn the disc, thinking it will find it, but I'm not sure what in the world it's doing right now.
