Can't eject a DVD. Tried the following -
Eject disc command from the DVD player - DVD just starts up again
Eject disc command from Finder - same result
Highlight disc on desktop and move to trash - same result
F12 - no longer an eject disc button on this version of the OS
Restart while holding down trackpad button - nothing happens
Shutdown and restart - nothing happens
Firmware command - eject cd - the disc image is now gone from the desktop but it didn't eject and now I can't even find it again (not after restart, shutdown and restart, open DVD player and it doesn't appear).

So now I have a disc in my disc drive but I can't even see it. How can I get it to eject?
Powerbook G4 17", Mac OS X (10.5.8)
