    Nothing shows on the Desktop unitl you insert a disc in the SuperDrive. It will, however, appear as a device in Disk Utility.

    Do you mean that you cannot see the SuperDrive in your Finder in teh sidebar?

    When you go to to FInder's Menu >> Preferences >> Sidebar Do you have the External Disks checked???


    Any other error appearing, such as device not having enough power via USB port???

    Five ways to eject a stuck CD or DVD from the optical drive


    Ejecting the stuck disc can usually be done in one of the following ways:


      1. Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the

          left mouse button until the disc ejects.


      2. Press the Eject button on your keyboard.


      3. Click on the Eject button in the menubar.


      4. Press COMMAND-E.


      5. If none of the above work try this: Open the Terminal application in

          your Utilities folder. At the prompt enter or paste the following:


            /usr/bin/drutil eject


    If this fails then try this:


    Boot the computer into Single-user Mode. At the prompt enter the same command as used above. To restart the computer enter "reboot" at the prompt without quotes.

    Usually on the top right. Has what appears as a large upward pointing triangle icon.
