    I have a 2009 imac and I just upgraded to snow lepoard
    my dad put in some disc for something and now it won't eject
    it will mount and from looking at the files its a windows disc because its all .exe files
    when I eject it from finder the disc image will disappear but it doesn't come out or even make a sound
    in disk utility the eject option is faded out
    I've tried restarting and pressing the mouse, eject button, and f12 but none work
    the drive is always quiet except when its booting it makes a sound like its taking a disc otherwise its completely silent
    I know that there is no way to manually eject so I'm going to apple on the weekend
    My question is whether this is a drive problem or a software problem because of snow lepoard(which would seem silly because snow lepoard suppose to be better at ejecting)

    Drive problem. Snow Leopard couldn't prevent the disk from ejecting when you hold the mouse button on startup.
