3. Click on the Eject button in the menubar.
4. Press COMMAND-E.
5. If none of the above work try this: Open the Terminal application in your Utilities folder. At the prompt enter or paste the following:
If this fails then try this:
Boot the computer into single-user mode. At the prompt enter the same command as used above. To restart the computer enter "reboot" at the prompt without quotes.

after upgrading to mountain lion my optic drive would not eject CD-R's? After multiple failed attempts with apple tech support I found that the ONLY solution was to put the Imac into "fire wire" mode by holding the T key while booting up, then once in fire wire mode hitting the eject key. I believe there is some flaw with the mountain lion OS at this time, that does not seem to work well with the optic super drive? store bought CD's seem to work just fine.
