The other way to get a CD out if eject isn't working is to restart your computer, holding down the left mouse button as it boots up. It'll spit out any optical media in the drive as you do so.

Have you attempted dragging the disc icon to the trash? If yes, then follow the advice of .Andy.

Mac cd eject fail

I have a similar problem:
I meant to create a new image to a blank cd but intead burned an iso file. The disk is not recognised, does not show up in either Finder or disk utilities and will not eject. I have tried all the options in the Mac Tiger Help plus the suggestions in this forum but it will not eject. Help!!
