    Do another restart and hold down the mouse button (trackpad button). Hold it after the Startup Chime until the disk ejects.

    also, is there another way to see if something is connected to your computer or a disc is in, other than the one that appears on the desktop?

    Launching DiskUtility will generally tell you that. Sometimes a drive can show up as connected but never mount, so it wont appear on the desktop, you can mount it in DiskUtility.

    System Profiler will tell you everything you want to know. It is in your Applications>Utilities folder (or go to Apple Menu>About this Mac>More Info).

    As well, holding the F12 or eject keys will do the same.
