Currently Being ModeratedJun 4, 2007 6:55 PM (in response to Eric Petermann)When I re-read the question... I can get the CD drive door to open when I hold down the mouse at startup. But the eject key does not work, and when I do put a CD in the drive after start up, it doesn't make it to the desktopMacBook, 2 GHz Intel Core Duo, Mac OS X (10.4.8)

some people reported that, after one of the security updates, they had to hold the eject key longer--up to a full second--to get it to activate. However, that would not explain the disk not mounting.PowerMac G4 MDD 1.25G SP, Mac OS X (10.3.9), also Beige G3 Rev C MT with Sonnet G3/500 (10.3.9)

The eject key will not work if it is on the ATA66 or ATA100 Bus nor if set for other than cable select.If it's pre intel I've got it., Mac OS X (10.4.9), Chimeras All
Currently Being ModeratedJun 18, 2007 7:16 PM (in response to Eric Petermann)Have you tried pressing and holding the eject key? I believe there was a recent change that required a longer pressing of this key to open the drive doors. Look at System Profiler to see if the drive is present on the ATA Bus.
