Thank you for your review
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 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.
