This may sound so simple but it may be the problem. Unplug your USB keyboard and just plug in your mouse. Then insert the DVD. If it stays in, you have a sticky key on the keyboard. Cleaning your keyboard may be all that it takes.
Otherwise, your optical drive is not recognizing the platter and you have more serious issues. Rule out the easy and obvious first.

I had the same problem with an iMac. I tried zapping the PRAM, running Disk Utility and the only thing that worked was getting Disk Warrior and running the various things involved and that worked like a charm.
