Cannot eject CD from iMac!
I have a CD in my iMac that I'm unable to eject. I was able to download the music on the CD to iTunes but when I tried to eject it afterward I was unable to.
The CD isn't showing up in Disk Utility, the Desktop, my Finder or in iTunes. My iMac is trying to eject it but can't.
I've tried shutting down, restarting and ejecting from System Utilities. Nothing is working.
My computer's about 3 years old and otherwise works great.
Any ideas would be most appreciated - thanks!

Thanks for your responses...I've tried all of this stuff and nothing worked.
Is there any truth to using the combo of an unfolded paper clip and another CD to get it out? I don't want to damage the drive of course, so I'm a little unsure about that one.
I don't know what else to do.

Call me paranoid but this is why I use an external CD drive on my iMac. I just don't trust slot load drives for this very reason
Mid 2011 Mac Mini, 2.3 GHz, 8GB of RAM, 500 GB HD, 2 TB external HD, 40" Samsung Display, 4th gen iPod Shuffle
Custom built Windows 7 PC, Acer Aspire One 722 Netbook, second gen Nexus 7, (2) Roku 3's
