    If it is not physically jammed, you don't have to reboot:
    Open iTunes
    Choose Controls: Eject Disk (Command-E)

    This ejects the mechanism whether or not the Mac 'thinks' there is a CD in it or not.

    If the disk is actually jammed, sometimes you can slide in some thin card stock and "guide" the CD out.

    If you are dealing with a miniCD or a business card CD that you have inserted into a slot loading mechanism ... then my condolences. Take it to a technician.
