    The drive is attached to your Parallels VM.

    Eject it from within Parallels or let OS X have the drive back. I'm a Fusion user so I can't direct you more than that.

    I went into the windows side & went to computer, & the DVD was showing up, so I ejected it from the windows side, I guess I did it right, I got the disc out. Thanks for the help.
