Hi, my name is Luke, and this is ejecting and removing a disc. If you'd like to eject a disc that's been inserted into your computer, the first thing you are going to want to do is insert the disc into your computer. Use it as per its requirements and then when you are done, you can go to the start button, go to computer and then go to where you see devices with removable storage. Once the disc loads, you'll see that it gets a different icon. It will display to you what type of disc it is as well as a few other properties. Here you can see it's a DVD, read/write. If you'd like to eject it, you can right click and scroll down to eject. This will remove the drive from the disc tray. Another option you have is if your keyboard has what looks like an up arrow with a line underneath it, this is the eject symbol. Hold the shift or function key and press the eject symbol on the keyboard. This will also eject the drive from your machine. Once this happens you'll notice that the drive leaves the disc tray and that's it.
