    The DVD opens in the normal way on the Mac side but not on the Windows side. Is there a different keystroke or maybe another problem.
    Thanks

    I installed Nero on the Windows side.

    My problem is the drawer doesn't open on the windows side to put in a dvd. It opens on the Mac side with the top right corner key. Is there a different key or key combination for the windows side or do I have another problem?

    If you have Nero installed just click on the icon eject disk.

    In windows, install the Apple drivers from the dvds that comes with your computer.

    Sorry folks, nothing works, but thanks for your replies.
    Got on Mac side to open DVD slot, inserted the Leopard disc in, Re-started computer on Windows side, but it won't recognize disc. We go to this keyboard folder and there are no drivers to click on. But in system32 folder, there are several Apple keyboard items with a yellow exclamation mark on them. Keep deleting those but they always return as soon as I unplug and re-plug keyboard.
    Nero isn't installed on Windows side either to be able to use Eject button.
    Thanks.

    Does anything show up in My Computer (Windows), as far as actually having a drive?

    If it does, you can right-click on it and go to eject.
