    Eject it from Disk Utility or iTunes.


    Reboot the computer holding the trackpad button or wired mouse button down.

    Try creating a burn folder, drop some data in it and press the burn button. It should pop the disc out. Then, just cancel the burn.

    Five ways to eject a stuck CD or DVD from the optical drive


    Ejecting the stuck disc can usually be done in one of the following ways:


    1. Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the left mouse button until the disc ejects.


    2. Press the Eject button on your keyboard.


    3. Click on the Eject button in the menubar.


    4. Press COMMAND-E.


    5. If none of the above work try this: Open the Terminal application in your Utilities folder. At the prompt enter or paste the following:

         /usr/bin/drutil eject


    If this fails then try this:


    Boot the computer into single-user mode. At the prompt enter the same command as used above. To restart the computer enter "reboot" at the prompt without quotes.

    Twice now, I have had the same problem...  It seems that I can only burn in iTunes, if I try burn anywhere else this problem occurs.  I've tryed everything.  Only thing seem to work is to shut down computer and let it sit for a while then boot it back up and it spits the media out on its own.  Any ideas?
