Turn everything off.
Open out a paper clip to give you a piece of stiff wire a couple of inches long, but leave one of the bends in to give yourself purchase.
Poke the wire straight into the small hole you will see somewhere in the front of the drive, and push.
The drive should slide open enough to gently pull it the rest of the way.
(A bit of dextrous manipulation may be required if the CD is actually wedged, but it should do the trick.)
