You can try tipping the Mac on its side with the DVD drive pointing down and shake it gently while pressing the Eject button on the Keyboard.
If that doesn't work, the only other way is disassembly :(

Just plug in the drive and burn away! Mac's do not require specific drivers or add-on software to read or burn disks. If there is a specific type of disk or media (Movie, Documents etc.) you want to burn let me know those specifics and I can let you know how to do it.
The LG 32LD550 television has HDMI and VGA. Your iMac has a mini-DVI output port with support for DVI, VGA, S-video, and composite video connections via adapter. So all you need is either: 1) mini-DVI to VGA adapter. 2) mini-DVI to HDMI adapter.
HDMI is better quality, and so I'd recommend something like this: http://www.amazon.com/PTC-Mini-DVI-Adapter-6ft-Macintosh/dp/B001H0REVK (You may want a longer cable though).
I just pulled one apart. You're not going to get it to work unless you pry it apart on the bottom. the parts are stuck together with 2 sided tape. use a thin, flat bladed screwdriver to pop it apart. i did this with relative ease, and it worked alright. didn't trash the plastic too badly either.
Ok, let's go through the options in case you have missed one. Command E, Open Finder and click eject button next too it's name, dragging the item to trash, press F12, or hitting eject on the keyboard. If none of those work make sure the drive is not just busy. Sometimes you have to wait a few seconds even after stopping the application. You can use Disk Utility in Applications/Utilities to eject a CD. Open Terminal and type drutil tray eject
If that fails, in Terminal type drutil list and then look at the list and find the drive. Tyoe drutil tray eject 1 The 1 should be replace with whatever drive # you found in the list.
Did you use the same Maxell blank CD's in the other mini?
If so, it sounds like your drive may be failing/failed. Try another brand of CD in the superdrive just in case. I have found that drives that are beginning to fail will have problems with some brands but not others. Sometimes they'll go totally dead a while after that point, others will still be ok with another brand that they "like" more.
LG has not yet developed the drivers for mac. And you won't find them on the CD, so don't get crazy to put the minicd con the mac... it won't be useful. Just monitor the lgmobile.com mobile for the drivers to be published. LG has promised them for the first half of 2008. Until then, you can only use USB or Bluetooth to exchange data.
