AxL, what exactly are you trying to Eject? CD? DVD? DATA Disc? HD?

Try these suggestion:

a. CTRL-Click the item on the Desktop and Select "Eject".

b. Reboot the Mac. Hold down the Mouse Button during the startup process. This will force the Optical drive to eject any media inside.

Let us know if this resolves your issue.

Try holding down both mouse (left click; if not try right click) and the eject key when trying to eject. And, [here are some other possibilities|http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2097] as well as the one I mentioned.

Hi thank you for all your suggestions so far.
Before I upgrade to Snow leopard to open the cd draw I just pressed the eject key on the keyboard. Now I have to launch itunes to open the draw, Nothing else seems to work?

Is there any reset button to allocate the command back to the eject button?

In order to find where the problem comes from before adventurously trashing any system file, I would like to know whether this problem happens only to one User Account or to all Users?
Also:
Please repair permissions and run a Verify Disk before any further troubleshooting.

In the meanwhile, no need to open iTunes, you can put an Eject button in the status bar.
Just go to
/System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras
and doubleclick the Eject.menu icon.
