Re: CD stuck in computer

Most drawer-type drives have a pinhole eject - use a straightened paper clip to eject the disc.

The only way that could have happened is if the disc slid over the outside of the drive.  You'll have to remove the drive - if you post the system model, someone can direct you to the instructions for doing that.
