Ardiem is the evolution of a little utility called "CocoaEject". The program is designed to provide simple methods for the user to manage the CD drives connected to their system. Ardiem's features include:
  • Complete support for hot-swappable devices
  • An easily extendable plugin based system for adding support to new types of devices in the future
  • User selectable system-wide keystrokes for opening/ejecting any of the detected drives
  • A status icon in the bar allowing quick and easy access to all detected drives
What's New
Version 1.1.1:
  • [Bugfix] Several brands of FireWire CD/DVD drives were not properly recognized. This should be fixed now but if any users are still having issues (mainly LaCie users) please send an email to bugreports@chaoticminds.org or post in the Bug Reports section of the Chaotic Minds forums.
  • [Bugfix] Firewire drives will not properly add/remove themselves when they are unplugged from the host system or powered down.
Requirements
PPC, Mac OS X 10.2 or later

I used this app a while ago, and it worked well with my internal DVD-RW and external DVD-RW, but I never really gave it too much thought until I switched over to a non-Mac keyboard without an eject button.


This little app is INVALUABLE!

I downloaded this program and dropped the Ardiem icon into my applications menu. I see the eject icon in the finder menu but when I click on preferences I just get the menu for the sidebar preferences, nothing related to Ardiem. I just tried to trash the program but I get an error message saying that the item cannot be moved to the trash because it is in use... I cannot eject it or trash it or even close it. I just want this program out of my life!

USB or Firewire drives aren't supported? Why wouldn't I just hit the eject key? This software is truly useless...

Really nice work. Previous version always worked to perfection with my LaCie FW CD/RW, but this version recognizes my internal DVD-ROM as well; guess I could assign a different kbd shortcut to it if I wanted to.

Needed something like this for a long time in order to eject my firewire DVD±RW drive.

Downloaded and tried it. Great! Simple. Does it's thing and that's that.

till now...

Wondering if an OS change has affected it because neither choosing the menu item, or pressing the hot-key i set does anything any more, though the drive is obviously still appearing.
