  • Have you tried to push the disk button on the side. There should be a button.

  • Is it stuck? There should be a small hole in the DVD tray. Poke a paper clip in it and it should eject it.

  • Which would work unless you have a laptop like the one I just got that doesn't even have a tray. Mine is like my cd player in the car, where it just sucks it in. It took me 15 minutes to figure out how to eject it. Did you check the support forum for your make and model? They are usually quite helpful.
