Question about HP Computers & Internet
If the eject button is not working, assuming this is a Windows based computer, click on start icon, your start menu will display, on right side under your user icon you should see Computer or My Computer, click on it.
You will now see all drives in your computer. Right click on your dvd(optical) drive. You should see an eject option.
If this dosen't work, close to the eject button on the drive is a tiny hole that will accept a paper clip, carefully push clip into hole until drive ejects.

Is there any power to the drive? IE is there a green light on the front when trying to read the disk?
It may not have the power in, or may have blown a power circuit.
IF it was just the door not opening and the unit has power, i would suggest the little rubber band is having issues and not opening or closing the door.

Woah! You don't want to hear this but forcing a second disc into the drive has probably destroyed the drive read head. They are pretty tough and it might be able to survive but you will most certainly have to dismantle the drive to remove the DVD and not create any more damage. Kind of like scraping someone elses car in a parking lot. More damage is done when you try to back off of the other car than the initial hit. (not like that's ever happened to me :) )

Look at the back of both drives, there should be some tiny jumpers located next to where you plug the data cable in. One drive should be set to master and one drive to slave. Chances are you have both set as master. Change one to slave and your problem should go away.

It's a little strange that the CD burner (I presume you're trying to burn a CD?) is drive F: it's normally D. Can you please open Windows Explorer (press the "Windows" key and E simultaneously) and give us a list of the drives you see in the left hand panel. You should see drives C, D,E and F (possibly other after F as well(. Can you also say what model the computer is, what operating system you are running (e.g. Windows XP) and which software you are using to try & burn the disc. Then we can try & figure out what's wrong :)
