I put in a computer game i found in my iMac, and the CD didn't come up on the desktop like CD's usually do. It just continued whirring like it was loading the CD, nothing happened. I tried to restart, but it got to the desktop background, and the little black swirly thing in the middle of the screen. And after 15 minutes it didn't restart OR shut-down so i had to press the power button, which I hate doing. So i now i have no way of getting the CD out, and I'm kind of scared I've completely knackered it, everything else is working swimmingly, but theres a CD stuck in the drive and i can't get it out :|

Nah i tried the Command-Option-O-F thing and that didn't work. I tried holding down the button after pressing restart, but it wouldn't restart so that kind of failed :\ i'll turn it off and try again with the mouse key tho
