I have the same Problem..
Authored by: paseng on Jul 02, '02 11:57:47AM

I have a new iMac 800 SDrive and the eject key will NOT work after upgrading to 10.1.5 . I have tried everyone's suggestions and none of them have worked.

The only thing that will open the drive when there is no cd in the tray, is starting up TOAST 5 and using the eject button in that program! I have searched the net and Apple's site for some solutions but I have found nothing so far. My next step is to call up Apple support and see if someone can help me there.

If anyone else has had this problem please give a "me too" so we know that its not just a few people with this problem.

I was just being a patient Mac user and waiting for the next update but the work around is getting annoying.

If I find a solution or an answer I will most definitely return and post it.

I have recently had to reinstall OS X and when I updated to 10.1.5 I too have found that my eject key doesn't work. Also my volume and mute key are dead too. I'd really appreciate it if you know the answer - to forward it on to me....

here's hoping

Same problem on a G5 after up grading 10.2 to 10.3. I have found that the itunes eject button does work, and the key boared eject button works for a moment on boot right after the mouse lights up. This is the only way I have found I can open the cd tray. I haven't tried toast.

Yep, same with me. None of the top four keys work any more. I posted a message on the Apple Discussions group, but haven't found a solution yet.

Another side effect I have is that my second internal CD-ROM drive is invisible. Not even Toast sees it anymore. Maybe this is indicative of a CD-ROM-driver problem?

...Would love to find a solution to this one!
