I just upgraded from XP pro to Windows 7 home premium yesterday and it's all been working great save one little detail: my disc drive will not eject discs. I've tried the eject button (I'm on an aluminum macbook late 2008) as well as manually ejecting the discs from explorer. When I boot up in OSX I can eject discs fine. It's probably also important to note I'm using the bootcamp drivers that came with my 10.5.6 OSX installation disc, so I don't know if those are up to par for running Windows 7.

Any suggestions would be great

    I have the same problem, however, I also have another problem. My Mac has got keyboard backlight function. When I am in Windows 7, I can dim the light but turn it off.
    Do you have the same problem?!

    I have the same problem with windows 7 not ejecting discs (with macbook pro late 2008 with latest Bootcamp drivers installed).

    At the moment I can eject the dics only by putting windows 7 to sleep (closing the lid) and on wake the disc ejects by pressing the normal Eject key.

    Hope apple (or MS ??) will fix this...

    I also have the problem. I'm using boot camp 3.0 on macbook pro unibody 2008 and it will allow me to eject only discs that have been inserted after windows 7 has completely booted. Any discs already in the drive during the boot still reads after boot but will not eject via explorer or eject button.
