    Try Restarting the Machine and Holding the trackpad button down. (or the mouse button if you use one)
    this will force eject anything in the Drive.

    He said it works but he has to push Fn.

    First of all, check your keyboard and accessibility options to make sure everything is correct.

    Exactly, under Keyboard there is a tick box that sets the Fn button.
    Relax it is not a big problem.

    System Preferences -> Keyboard and Mouse -> Keyboard -> uncheck "Use the F1-F12 keys to control software features"

    It comes unchecked by default, so it's likely that you or someone else checked that tick box.
