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.

Does the DVD start to come out and then gets sucked back in and reappears on the desktop?
I had that happen with a MacBook. It turned out that the metal case behind the plastic cover above the slot was slightly bent down. When the CD tried to eject it would hit the metal and get pulled back in. Putting a flat blade screwdriver in the slot and gently twisting it to move the metal case up allowed it to eject. Don't put it in too far you only want to bend the case not the drive.
The case can get bent down by picking it up with your thumb pressing down on the case above the slot.

I finally went to Apple Genius Bar, they couldn't help after many attempts. Across the street at Tech Serve, they booted up and pressed lower left corner of touch pad as blue screen came up, disc ejected immediately. Easy
