EJECTING DISCS FROM THE SIDEBAR

You'll notice when you insert some kind of removable media into your Mac (removable media is geek-speak for CDs, DVDs, FireWire or USB drives, digital camera memory cards, etc.), a micro-icon (I'm not sure that's what they're really called) appears to the right of its name in the sidebar of your Finder window. These are actually buttons, and they're there to save you time and trouble. For example, next to removable drives, that little icon is an Eject button. Click it, and it ejects that drive or CD or whatever (this beats the heck out of dragging the disc down to the Eject icon in the Dock). If you insert a blank CD or DVD, you'll see a little “nuclear” warning sign. This is a Burn icon that lets you burn (write) info to that disc.
