Use disktool and System Profiler to eject stubborn CDROM discs
Authored by: Frederico on Dec 10, '03 11:38:56PM

We've been seeing this a lot in Panther suddenly; it also tends to occur frequently in CD-ROM-only drives. Solution: use Fast User Switching to log into another account (root seems to work best), where the disk will "remount", and now will eject properly. Logout and return to the original user and keep moving. Not sure if this method is faster or not; the need to do either is becoming more than annoying, and will hopefully be resolved in 10.3.2.

Use disktool and System Profiler to eject stubborn CDROM discs

I have a similar problem when I am to quick taking my USB drive out of my laptop. I receive a warning on the screen that this was a premature thing to do and wait until the disk disappears from the desktop (which it allready have, btw). But when I reinsert the disk, it does not show up. Never. Not until after I reboot. Anyone seen this?
