Hi,
I installed windows 7 under bootcamp today, but now I cannot eject CDs. I get an error that says "An error occured while ejecting 'DVD RW Drive (D:) Windows Support'". Can anybody help here? What do I need to do to get it working again?

Thanks in advance,
Daniel Groves

    I had this happen when I first had my Snow Leopard disc in after finishing my install of the Boot Camp drivers. I had to reboot into OS X and eject the disc. After, I booted back into Win7 and tried inserting/ejecting the same disc and didn't have any problems.

    I will note that I had to rename the AppleMNT.sys file due to BSODs I was getting with HFS. I'll update this post if the issue with the DVD drive relapses.

    I had the same problem. It happened to my Snow leopard disc as well as some other disc. So basically the disc has to be eject out after use. If you leave it inside and restart ur windows 7, you will not be able to eject the disc. And an error message will show

    Try selecting Computer and then right clicking on the DVD drive icon. You should see an eject option that may work.

    The right-clicking at the "My Computer" did not work. Please help. Or is it because I left the disc there and booted Windows with it? Could it be that I can only eject a disc that I have put in AFTER Windows is booted up? (Didn't have this problem previously in Windows XP, and I skipped Vista btw... heh)
