Open up Disk Utility and eject it from there.

I tried the Disk Utility gambit.... no go. What FINALLY worked: unplug SuperDrive from MiniMac. Relaunch Finder. This allowed me to eject from the keyboard.... since the Finder was no longer using after the Relaunch.

Restart the Mac, in the mean time hold down the right click on your touch pad until the Mac fully open, then the disc will eject.

It's not really a good long term solution to restart your machine everytime a disk refuses to eject. Mine will evenually eject if I wait 15 to 45 minutes. I wonder if Spotlight is trying to index it or some other process is happening in the background.
This began the day I upgraded to Lion. It's clear to me that this is Lion problem.

In Terminal (Applications / Utilities / Terminal.app) wirte the commande drutil tray eject and press Enter. Forces any CD/DVD to eject in most cases. Not long term solution either but it works well. If you get this often consider creating a shortcut for it in Automator.
