Theres a simple Utility I created to remove discs that are stuck inside a SuperDrive. Try taking a look:
It sits in the menu bar. If you're still having issues, then it could be a hardware fault. Anyway, I hope this works.

I have a 2008 Macbook Pro and I had the disk replaced twice from Applecare for the same reasons. Now that Applecare is long gone, the problem started again. After much research, I figured out that it's the felt lips on the front of the DVD drive that is stopping the DVD from ejecting. i realize there is a purpose to these lips - keeping dust and foreign matter out and whatnot - but the drive doesn't function with these lips as they are. They are so tight the DVD can't get past - "let me out you felt lips!," said my son's Madagascar DVD. I used needle nose plyers and pulled out the lip all the way around. Be careful as it easily rips but you'll get it in time. My drive works perfectly now. If I have ruined the drive by allowing dust to get in, so what? I'll have to replace it but I'd have to replace it anyway with these felt lips.
I hope this helps.

This is a little primitive but I just had this issue and I figured it out! I kept hitting the eject button and the CD would spit out so I could just see it, then go back in. I turned the laptop on its side and continuously hit the eject button and if you stand there with a pair of tweezers you can grab it! I can't put more discs back in the disc drive but for anyone with this issue, this works.
