    HI,

    I have a 24" iMac, because of the limited space, I can't use the side load internal superdrive, so I got a external USB superdrive to make it front loadable. The problem is when I attach it to the USB on the iMac, I can't eject the disk from the keyboard eject key, otherwise it works great. The eject key works fine for the internal drive. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

    It's actually kinda strange really, it was working last night, this morning I changed it to a different USB port, before it was plugged in to a powered USB hub, but the hub doesn't have enough power to drive it so I switched it to the USB port on the iMac, after that the eject key stopped working. I tried reset PRAM and SMC, no luck.
