    Hi, this seems like it should be really simple but I'm having trouble figuring it out.

    I'm trying to clean up my desktop and am getting annoyed by the disk icon. It's the CD icon for The Sims 3. If I try to move it, it creates a copy, and if I try to trash it, it ejects the disk, and I play the game enough that I don't want to have to be getting it out and in and out and in all the time, especially where I currently have my computer set up.

    If you click on Finder in the menu bar, then select Preferences you can untick CDs/DVDs, so that the icon is removed. This applies to all discs that you put into the drive.
