You may have to take it apart. If the auto-ejection does not function, try right clicking on the drive and hitting eject. Otherwise, get a set of mini screwdrivers and remove the drive from your computer. Remove the top and you should have direct access to the disk you want inside.

You can use a straightened paper clip to do the job. Just insert it through the small emergency ejection hole located just below the disc tray.

The following method only works for drives with a tray, it will not work on slot loaded drives. The drive should have a small hole located near the eject button. Take a small paper clip and unfold it so that it fits in the hole. Push the paper clip into the hole to manually open the drive.

For a DVD or CD-Rom drive, you will need a paper clip. Unbend the clip so that you have a straight piece about an inch long. On the front of the drive you will see a little hole. Isert the clip and push. This will open the drive.
