Opening up the terminal application found in the utilities folder within your applications folder and then type in drutil tray eject and then press return
Tilt your imac so that the DVD drive is pointing downwards and press the eject key and hopefully the effect of gravity will allow
the DVD to fall out.
One other way to do it which I have used
recently but IT CAN BREAK THE DVD DRIVE, so only use it as a last
resort. Get a thin piece of plastic and put a piece of double sided tape
on it then with the imac switched off insert the piece of plastic
with the tape facing down in relation to the screen. Put it in about
half an inch and you may be able to drag the dvd out.
if the iMac is one of the computers with the slot-load drive (you don't load the disc into a tray before it goes into the computer), then placing a disc smaller than a regular CD/DVD will damage the CD drive and will be very hard to remove.
you could buy an external CD/DVD drive and then use smaller discs with the iMac.
