You know, I don't like to be a grammar Nazi, but your question is almost incomprehensible. With that being said, what I gather is going on is...

  • that you put a FreeBSD CD in the drive.
  • Ran it (booted it maybe?).
  • You remove the CD.
  • Computer still thinks the FreeBSD CD is in the drive.

Does that sound about right? One of the key things here is which operating system are you using? Mac OSX, Windows, FreeBSD, Linux, something else?

And did you try the reset button? That usually works wonders when a glitch happens.

Sounds like Windows to me. He is probably stuck with "FreeBSD" or whatever the CD label in D:\, whereas inserting another media probably refuses to "free" it and shows up in, say, E:\

cameron stephenson sorry if I got it wrong, but Maelstorm has a point about not being clear. If, by chance, I guessed it right and a hard reset did not fix it, I can't help you any further.
