Eject the Optical Drive on Using a Non-Apple Keyboard


I spilled Mountain Dew into my Apple USB keyboard. No harmful effects besides a dead space-bar. Of course, that's enough...


So I'm using my wonderful Kinesis Keyboard full-time now.
But for some reason, even in Mac mode, the eject key isn't working.
A bit of digging found the answer over at TidBITS: Apple has provided a menu option to eject one or more optical drives, you just need to enable it.


From the Finder, just go to /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/ and open Eject.menu. Poof! The eject menu item you see at the top of this post is enabled.
