After the CD is verified, try using FILE|EJECT function from within the
player program instead of pressing the EJECT button, or
right-clicking|EJECT in Windows Explorer. That _may_ prove more successful.
If the drive still hangs, press the Windows key (the one with the flag)
and the PAUSE key simultaneously. Click the HARDWARE tab|DEVICE MANAGER
button and locate the DVD/CD ROM branch...
Click the + sign, to see the CD device itself. Right-click on the device
name. Click DISABLE (not UNinstall). Wait until that operation
completes, then click ENABLE. Now see if the disk will eject.
