    For some reason, on the left side of the Finder, it shows "untitled dvd" with a burn icon and when I click on it, it says it cannot be found. How can I remove this?

    I think when I was using Toast it caused it...

    I'm bumping a very old thread, but this problem is now happening to me. Scouring the internet suggests the same drag and drop, use disk utility, create a new folder and add that, then delete it.

    Sadly none of these work. I've relaunched finder, restarted, put a new DVD in and ejected that but nothing wants to work.

    Anyone have any ideas? (Or any clever terminal code?)

    Cheers

    If you're using Snow Leopard, then Right/Ctrl click and delete from there.

    I've tried both of those, and neither of those work either. I drag the folder off of the finder side bar but the "puff of smoke" symbol doesn't appear and releasing the mouse just flings it back on to the side bar.

    I can't drag it to the trash either. Simply clicking it doesn't open anything up either - nor does it give anything like a "folder not found" message.

    Edit: I hadn't tried Command THEN click. Which worked. Thanks a lot :)

    Thank you so much! I was having the same problem...not being able to delete an "untitled DVD" from the sidebar in Finder. I was just about to give up when I read your "command THEN click" instruction! :)

    Thanks again!

    I'm having the same problem and none of these are helping me. Command click doesn't do anything. Control click opens a gives me an option to "open sidebar preferences." It won't let me drag at all. Any suggestions?
