  1. You will probably have to pull the drive apart to fix it. The hole you are talking about is to eject the drive when it wont eject on its own.
  2. Take the drive out of the computer and take the metal cover off. You will be able to retrieve the CD.

    Look for screws around the back edge. When laid flat the top panel slides off.
