    I'm new here and this is my first post but hear it goes :). I've had a Macbook for a couple years and I have some knowledge of OS X but this one has stumped me.

    My friend called me tonight and she told me on her new iMac that in the finder window, after clicking on Macintosh HD, the eject button was missing that should be next to the device. This apparently happened earlier today with a CD and happened when she called me with an External HDD.

    She was however able to eject the stuff by either dragging it to the trash or doing "Open Apple" + E, key shortcut. I'm stumped on this because she was till able to eject the HDD or CD with the previous methods but the Finder, "eject" button for the devices was missing.

    Any help would be much appreciated! :D

    That happens to me from time to time as well. It's a little inconvenient if that's how you're used to ejecting drives, but I don't see it as a problem. Just use command+E, which is faster anyway.
