    Intel Mac Pro w/ 10.4.10.

    I put a CD full of photos in my drive. I navigate to a folder, select all the images, right-click and select "Slideshow".

    Very cool feature, except one image always gets hung up. When I'm done, and exit the slideshow, I try to eject the disk, and it won't let me. It says whateverpic.jpg is being used, so it can't eject.

    Same thing if I copy the files to my hard drive, view a slideshow, then try to delete those files. OS X refuses to delete one, because it's in use.

    Rebooting seems to be the only way to get it to release that last photo so I can eject/delete.

    Any idears?

    Is it the same photo every time? Is this happening with multiple discs? :)

    Apple (on menu bar) -> Force Quit -> select Finder and hit Relaunch, that usually lets me eject or delete files that OSX thinks it is in use.
