You might find having an eject button in the menu bar useful. So in this video we demonstrate how you can add the eject button to macOS.

Note: An alternative method for ejecting a disk from a CD, DVD or Blue-ray drive is to drag the disk icon into the recycle bin. However, we find this method to be counter intuitive.
