Been there, done that but to no avail. Still can only eject them by forece eject. By the way,why does the message show that I am running 10.7.2 instead of 10.8.2?

Now all of a sudden the disks are ejecting but afterward the window pops up that says Focre Eject

The problem does't seem to be with a stuck CD/DVD. I can get them our by using Foce Eject . I hgave had to use restart acouple of times but that is not the norm. This proberlm sidn't start until after I upgraded to ML. Do you think I should clean istsall ML and try that? I had a stuck CD/DVD tissue under Lion and now it has chabged to this.

To answer your second question: If you go to the Apple Menu and select "About This Mac", what version does of OS X does it say that you are runinng?

Under the Apple >ABOUT THIS MAC and it shoews me running`10 8.2. When I was on Lion it Said 10.7.5 but the profile in Support said I was running 10.6.2 and still does when I post a question. I was on 10,7,5 die ayit some time hjefore I uprgraded to ML. Does that help inany way?

The profile in the forums needs to be updated by you manually.
Your "About this Mac" descrition is the final word - you are running 10.8.2.

If I understand you correctly, this problem started when you were using Lion (10.7)?
If that is true, my best guess is it may be a Superdrive problem.
You can try running this Apple Hardware Test, but it can miss things or report false results:
If your computer is still under warranty, you might consider visiting the Genius Bar at an Apple store, if that is a possibility, if the problem doesn't get resolved.
Do you have access to another computer where you can see if the DVDs giving you problems eject properly?

My computer is way off warranty. I have a system software disc that I made from the download from the Apple Store and I also have the installer on my external Hd. I one of those will work let me know and I will give the Hardware Test a Shot. From past experience I suspect the Superdrive is going away and I have odered an external Superdrive to solve the problem... It should be here now, infact I think it is in the PO at this time, at least the tracking said so.

You are welcome. I have a 2008 iMac and the Superdrive died after it started acting like what you described.

I suppose that is all part of the planned demise of some things huh? I see the new iMacs don't even have an internal superdrive, among other things. Kinda glasd I purchsed the external one, hope it lasts longer than three years!, just in case I need to get a new 'puter. I probably shouldn't have started with computers when I was so old but now it's hard to pur them away. I did my mastgers theses on an early Apple, I think it was called a Classic or something. Had to pur in a 64 mb disk to run the thiong if I remember rightly. Got my theses done anyway, then I sold it and got fomwthing al little bigger and here I am on a three old iMac. Come a long way since nintenn eighty someting .
Thanks againf for your help, it was appreciated muchly.
