Ejecting media from a drive

Use Eject media to eject the media currently in the drive. If the media is a tape, Eject rewinds the tape before ejecting it.

Some drives do not support a software-driven media eject. If the media is a tape, the tape is rewound and you may be instructed to manually remove it.
