Hold down your mouse button while booting up.
That will eject it.

I've had this a couple of times and found the only way to get it out is by tapping the underside of the machine (directly under where the cd is spinning). Try to eject again and then tap again. Keep doing this a few times and hopefully it'll come out. Can you here the disc whirr around?

As for internal cd drives check out these from OWC I bought one just recently and have had no problems so far.
