    Whenever I put a DVD+RW in and eject it, the icon stays on the desktop and in the finder. I have to manually delete it. Why is it doing this? I tried repairing permissions and repairing disk, but it didn't help. It happens both on my new Aluminum macbook and my older whitebook.

    Because it is a folder containing contents you might want to write to another DVD.

    It's a blank DVD+RW with no contents. If I put a blank CD-R in and eject it the icon disappears normally. In addition, I found if I eject the DVD+RW by right clicking the icon and selecting eject, the disc pops out and the volume unmounts from the desktop as it should. If I use the physical eject button however, the icon gets left behind.
