My sister bought an ancient peripheral that only has drivers for Windows. But her Windows box has no CD drive, so I put the CD in my Macbook, made a tarball of it, put in on my web server, and downloaded it in Windows. No problem there.
But the MBP won't eject the drive. Keyboard button, shell command, finder control: all dismount the CD, make a lot of noise, then re-mount it.
Recently purchased refurb. Return as warranty claim? Or is there an alternative? Leaving on a trip in two weeks and want to take a computer along.
