I'm about to reboot and hold down the mouse button to try to eject it.

But I'd like to know: why is this happening in the first place?

I put a CD in last night and tried to burn an iso image to it. Now it's like the the CD/DVD drive isn't even recognized by the MBP. There's no icon on the desktop, finder doesn't recognize it, and hitting the eject button does nothing.

Is there a way around this without having to reboot?

I'm running a 2 week old MBP.
QUOTE Thanks

I restarted the computer, but before the os shut all the way down, the cd icon appeared on my desktop. Then I was able to eject. Not sure what's up with all this but the cd is out now at any rate.
QUOTE Thanks
