Is there any explanation for why there is no button next to the eject tray to open it on Macs? I know you can open the tray by pushing the arrow key in the far right corner of your key pad but it took me a while to figure that out.

Because there is no tray eject button because there is no tray. It is a slot load drive. Why have 2 buttons for the same thing?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

I guess because it would make too much sense.

You can also drag the disc to the trash to eject it.

Also, you can add an eject icon to your menu bar at the top. See instructions on how to here:
Eject CD: Add a Menu Bar Item to Eject a CD or DVD

Maybe we got us a troll?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Not a troll. Just someone who is finding it extremely challenging to figure out Final Cut Pro and Macs in general. I came to this forum because I thought it was a place to get help with Final Cut Pro. It is disappointing that there are a few people here who have such a negative attitude towards people who genuinely need assistance.

It's a bad idea to try and undertake two simultaneous big challenges at the same time, and you sound like you're under a deadline as well. Bad mix.

I'd suggest taking some time and learning the Mac. Mac 101 and Switch 101 can be of great help to get you up to speed on the basics.

THEN dive into Final Cut Pro, and you'll probably find it easier going, since you will now understand the underlying technologies that FCP leverages.
