I have A black 13" macbook hooked to a monitor and a wireless aluminium keyboard, the MacBook has A bad DVD drive so I ha an external usb one connected I am wondering if there is any way for me to change the eject key so it will eject this drive instead of the broken internal one.

Thanks

Yes it would be nice to know, but I don't seem to be getting any replies.

Don't use the eject key. (you can't change it anyway) Instead, right click or command click on the mounted DVD or CD and select eject. That will eject it from an attached external optical drive or even the internal one if it was working.
