1. I have a MAC Mini with a portable usb super drive connected. I put in a cd and now it won't eject. It also won't play. Don't care about it playing I only want it out. Please help.

2. Updated Flash player and now I can't hear or see video's on line. Took it off and reinstalled but still nothing. Please help.
Restart the computer and hold the mouse button until it ejects. Let me know

I tried that. Didn't eject.

Does the disk mount on the desktop?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

It's a portable USB Super Drive that the disc is in.

Yes I know that has nothing to do with it? Any optical drive connected to the Mini will mount the disk on the desktop if it is working. Do you see an icon of a CD/DVD on the Desktop?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No, I don't see one.


Will one of the F keys on the keyboard eject?

What model drive is it?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Mac oxX 10.7.5


2.3 GHzIntel Core

No I meant the USB Superdrive?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Sorry. It says model 1379 & serial number

Is the DVD drive on the Mini not working?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I don't know how to find out if it's working of not. As you can probably tell I'm quite dumb when it comes to computers.

Go to the Apple Logo to About This Mac then More Info what is the serial number?

Select the first icon in the Dock, the face (FInder), then go to the top left of your screen to Finder / Preferences / General and check all boxes under Show these items on the Desktop.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The icon was there and I was able to eject the disc.
