    I tried to burn a picture slideshow onto a blank DVD on my MacBook Pro. It didn't work, I got frustrated, so then I tried to delete it. Now, the untitled DVD folder is still on my desktop and it won't delete. Whenever I try to drag it to trash, it pulls up the finder, and doesn't let me click anything on my finder and just keeps making that annoying beeping noise.

    I tried to restart my computer, but it won't let me do that either.

    Help!

    Thank you!

    Dumb question but have you ejected the actual media ? And make sure it's unmounted.

    It's not a stupid question.

    I ejected the disc, it's no longer in my computer.

    I have no clue how to unmount it.... I'm sorry, I'm not very techy.

    Open disk manager and check if it's actually mounted. You can eject/unmount it from toolbar.

    Sorry, 'disk utility'

    You can find it in the 'Other' folder in Launchpad.

    I don't think it is mounted, nothing shows up except for "Macintosh HD" and "SuperDrive"(whatever that is)

    Superdrive is your physical dvd slot loading drive..

    Try to just restart the computer.

    Is there any way you can do a screenshot and post it here ?

    I was able to figure it out. I just force quit Finder and then it restarted automatically and now it's working. Thank you guys so much!
