    we've finally gotten an apple here at school to do some DTP work on for various projects.........

    but euhhhmmm.......... we dont know how to open the CD-rom drive.......

    it isnt showing up on the desktop like the HDD is. is it maybe not installed?

    i dont think the cd-rom shows up until there is a cd in the drive,
    i dont know myself, the apples i used were imacs, and u just pushed the cd in the slot.

    and there isnt an eject button on the mac itself

    btw, its an "older" mac...... with OS X 9.2

    there is sometimes a little hole that you push in with a needle if a disk gets stuck in, try that?

    edit: did u try f12?

    edit2: had a wee look, and it seems f12 is eject.

    Cant help you much with apples, they are like oranges to me, One of these days I am going to have to expand my learning from all the PC's and MCSE stuff to some apple stuff. But a fellow has an apple here in my work and usually he needs to put a cd in first before the drive shows up.
