I've got my build working at 100% on Mountain Lion GM. Well almost, the eject button on my aluminum Apple USB keyboard doesn't work! If I boot over to Lion it works. I would imagine that other people are having this problem also, any suggestions?

Do you show it in the command bar? Does it work from there?

Seeing the same exact thing, and working from the menu bar eject button.

Anyone have any clues?

One more with the same problem.

However does the eject icon in the menu bar work as it should.

Have you tried to re-assign the eject function to a new different key, and then back to the original key again?

That would be my first approach.

On another thought what regional keyboard layout do you have assigned to your keys? Maybe there's a mix-up and ML is just confused by it...(I know, I know, but with computers all's unreasonably possible).

It appears to be that Mountain Lion thinks that our DVD drives are not internal anymore. Try launching DVD Player and it will tell you that a valid DVD player could not be found.

I fixed that problem by editing /System/Library/Frameworks/DVDPlayback.framework/Versions/A/DVDPlayback with 0xED app and replacing any reference to "Internal" with "External"

This makes the DVD Player work but as far as the OS is concerned the drive is still external and F12 will not work to eject.
