6.9.e.To Eject Media

To eject media, right-click on the media object on the desktop, then choose Eject. If the drive for the media is a motorized drive, the media is ejected from the drive. If the drive for the media is not motorized, wait until the desktop object for the media disappears, then eject the media manually.

You cannot eject media from a motorized drive when the media is mounted. To eject media, first unmount the media. To remove a floppy diskette from the drive, perform the following steps:

  1. Close all file manager windows, Terminal windows, and any other windows that access the diskette.

  2. Right-click on the object that represents the diskette on the desktop, then choose Eject. The desktop object for the diskette disappears.

  3. Eject the diskette from the drive.

  Caution:

You must unmount removable media before ejecting. Do not eject a diskette from the drive before you unmount the diskette. Do not remove a USB flash drive before you unmount the flash drive. If you do not unmount the media first you might lose data.
