I've had my powerbook for about a month now, and I've noticed that the eject key has never worked to eject a CD. I thought that maybe it only worked under certain circumstances, but I'm starting to wonder why I'm never able to eject a CD with it. I have to drag the icon to the trash.

Should the eject key always eject any CD/DVD in the drive?

You have to hold it down for a few seconds, and it can't be in use or anything. Does it still not work?

If the disc isn't in use, it should just eject. I've not tested, but from memory, I think it will also eject if you're in the middle of playing a DVD.

:eek: . Well, I've just never held the button down. I guess I assumed tapping was sufficient. Holding it down for 1-2 seconds does the trick, thanks.
