The Apple Pro Keyboard requires Mac OS 9.1 for the Media Eject Key to function on a Macintosh computer.

The Media Eject Key puts away and ejects all CD or DVD volumes that appear on the desktop, or are otherwise available to the computer. This includes internal CD/DVD drives as well as external USB or FireWire CD/DVD drives. Examples of media are:

  • CD-ROM disc
  • DVD-ROM disc
  • DVD-RAM disc

Note: If multiple drives are connected with a disc in them that appears on the desktop, pressing the Media Eject Key puts away and ejects all discs.

The Media Eject Key does not eject Zip disks (external or internal) or other removable media that are not CD/DVD volumes.
