    OK, really sorry that I am actually posting a thread on this, as I am sure that the answer is already somewhere on here, but I just really don't know any good words to use in my search, so here goes:

    In OSX (Leopard), is there a way to allow the actual physical eject button on my external DVD drive to actually eject the disk? Obviously it is not a hardware limitation, seeing as I can do this just fine in Vista...

    So is there a terminal command, a .plist to edit, or even some 3rd party plug-in that will allow this to happen? It is really frustrating when OSX is locking up due to a bad DVD or something, or if I am in a hurry and need the damn drive to spit out the disk PRONTO...

    Thanks a lot for anyone's help on this, and again, I am pretty sure that there are numerous other threads about this, so sorry for the redundancy.
