    Did you have a CD in your drive and possibly not eject it properly (by dragging the icon to the trash)? The yellow/black circle is the button to initiate burning the CD.

    You might try going to Preferences in Finder and UNcheck "show CDs,DVDs, etc" in the Sidebar. Restart. Check that the CD is no longer showing; you can then recheck to show in the Preferences. If that doesn't work, try this:

    Another possibility is that some preference .plist has become corrupted; go to User -> Library -> Preferences and throw the following in the trash:

    com.apple.finder.plist
    com.apple.sidebarlists.plist

    Restart.

    You may have to reset your preferences in Finder after trashing the .plists.

    Glad to hear it worked - it might be helpful to mark this answered so people perusing the forum with the same type of problem could find a solution.
