    My internal Pioneer BluRay burner was working fine a few weeks ago and now I have to constantly reboot the maching in order to eject a disk. It will run fine and then when I go to eject it again, it wont and I end up having to reboot the machine to get the disk out. Any ideas?

    Maybe you are not getting proper power to it?
    We have a few of those in Mac Pros and had to move them to a diff slot.

    If you have it as the only Optical or 2nd Optical you will have to un-tick "Put hard disks to sleep when possible" in "System Preferences" "Energy Saver".
    Known issue if you do a Google.
    Once put to sleep the drives "disappear" - check in "About This Mac", "More info", "System Report", "Hardware", "Disk Burning".
    The drive will show until sleep activates, the disappears.
