Hey guys. I upgraded to 10.3.8. After doing so, I noticed that my F12 eject button on the keyboard didnt work. Apparently, the OS isnt recognizing everything it needs to be able to eject the disk.

Fix: Restart the computer. When the screen goes black, hold down the mouse button until the screen lights back up. This causes the cd to eject (or try to if there is no cd in it). Doing this causes the OS to fully recognize the drive and software.

Every computer I've tried this on (3 of them now) works perfectly as far as the eject button goes after doing this.

Hope this helps someone.

QUOTE Thanks
