How do I load and eject a CD or DVD from a Mini computer?

 

To eject a disk from the Mini, use the on-screen or keyboard controls — for either Windows or OS-X platforms


The Mini computer used in Liberal Arts classrooms may be configured with either the Windows Operating System or the Macintosh OS-X system.


The Mini's CD/DVD player does not have a slide-out tray or a physical button on the computer itself. To load a disk, simply insert it into the slot in front.

There are several ways to eject your disk when you're finished with it. Make sure that you have quit the program or application you were using to access the disk's content.

If the media system you are using is one with an Apple keyboard, simply press the eject key. If you are using the Mac OS-X system, you can click the eject button on the Menu Bar with the mouse pointer.
