Well you have to disassemble your console then remove
the cd rom drive open the case and your game will probably
be wedged between the hub and the top of the drive but once
opened it should fall right out.

That the safest way to to do it and save your game .

    If you had asked how to disassemble your console and drive
    I would have been more than happy to help you with a walk threw.
    Even if the laser or outher parts of the drive started to fail I could
    have helped you with that too . All you had to do was ask.

Disc tray stuck closed

Is it making the noise like it will open then getting stuck? If so, this can be tricky! It happens with me sometimes. Press the open button and as it goes to try and open push the disc tray in slightly and up and it should pop open, it does with me anyway.
