how do you get the cd drive to go back in in windows using bootcamp? The eject button on the keyboard works for ejecting, but not for bringing it back in. Obviously I can push it, but I dont really want to. Any ideas?

What kind of computer do you have? That would help...

If it's a MacPro, the only one without a slot-loading drive, I would just push the tray back in...or stay out of Windows. :p

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Yeah its a mac pro. I have just been pushing it, and thats fine, but is there a way to get windows to retract the drive by pressing a button? Its not a big deal, but I'd like to get it all working nicely!

I believe if you right-click on the CD icon in My Computer and click "eject" it should work. I would just keep pushing it in, if I were you... that's easier :p
