If the CD is connected to the guest OS, the Eject key won't work. You have to use the guest OS's eject mechanism instead.

Actually, "Guest OS" isn't a Mac term. It simply means the operating system running within the Parallels virtual machine. It also applies to all other virtual machine software (VMWare, VirtualBox, etc.).
