    Ok Number of things you can do

    1. Turn the mac on and hold the mouse button down
    2. Turn the mac on and hold the "option" key down so it loads the boot loader screen when the drives appear press the eject button on the keyboard.
    3. If the disk will not come out like the mac is trying to read it, wait for a while. if the mac can not read it it normally gives up and will eject it for you.

    I had this same thing happen and no matter what I tried it wouldn't come out. I had to take it in for repair and they got it out and had to replace the drive. I was lucky because it was under warranty.

    my imac has done it to me a few times not wanting to eject the media or tries to read it then keeps trying until eventually it spits it out.
