Followed advice that Mac don't need extra software to burn a DVD...Did so with a fresh RW-disc..Burn failure and after that the Drive is not seen anywhere and the disc is stuck and impossible to Eject.

Hello.

-Which exact model Mac?
-Does your Mac have a built-in optical drive?
-Is it an actual Apple USB SuperDrive?
-Does the CD-RW mount at all in Finder or can it be seen in Disk Utility?
-Have you tried restarting and hold the mouse/trackpad button before the chime? That should detect the drive and eject the disc.

It is a genuine USB Superdrive bought same time as the Mac in 2018.Specs below but sorry they are in Swedish. Now running Mojave as Catalina made too much problem.The DVD-RW could be seen and mounted...Then burn failure...Since then it's stuck and can't be seen in Disc utility either
