    There should be a key on the keybaord that looks like a triagle with a line below it - that is the eject botton

    Otherwise:

    Navigate to HD > System > Library > Core Services > Menu Extras.
    Double click on Eject.menu.

    This will place an Eject icon on the Menubar.

    I'm not running Leopard yet, so I can't look in my own system to see but according to this blog post, you should have a CoreServices folder with Menu Extras folder in it.

    It seems that Leopard has kept the same hierarchy for CoreServices that is present in OS X 10.4.x Tiger, though.

    Looks like you're accessing the Applications folder, not the Library folder... Did you move folders around ?

    This is the path that needs to be taken to find CoreServices...

    Ok here is the real problem. When I am running Parallels and Windows XP is open and running in the background; I CANNOT open the tray. If I close windows XP, then I can open the tray with no problems. Hummmm
    has anyone come across this before?

    Anyway thanks for your input.
