If you look very closely to the front faceplate the drive.  You’ll find a small pinhole, go get a paperclip. Straighten out that paper clip and firmly and deliberately stick it in the pinhole until you start to feel some resistance.  At that point continue pushing it in and the CD or DVD drive tray will eject a stuck cd.
