    I inserted a CD on my IMAC and the icon doesn't show up. When I restart my computer it does. But not when I first insert it. I hate having to close all my aps to restart every time I put a CD in.

    It just started doing this after I did a routine update of some aps that was volunteered by my IMAC. Not sure if that has to do with it or not. May be a coincident.

    Is it the same CD you are trying to put in, or does it happen with every CD?

    You're holding wrong.... sorry, had to say that.

    What were the apps that were recently updated? Something there might give us a clue.

    Check the following under Finder Preferences:
    • General -> "CDs, DVDs, and iPods" is checked under "Show these items on the desktop".
    • Sidebar -> "CDs, DVDs, and iPods" is checked under "Devices".
    If those don't work, also use Disk Utility and do a Disk Permissions Repair.

    After both of these are done, let us know if you still have the problem.
