I really am not trying to be flip but......have you tried pushing the eject key on the keyboard ? I only ask because you do not mention it in your post.

Hope this helps

Please list the methods you've used from the OS (other than Terminal). And what is Disk Manager (do you mean Disk Utility)? Once we know what you haven't tried, we can offer further assistance.

Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Can I assume that the Terminal command was "drutil tray eject"? Give this a read for some other options that may help. While some require a reboot, some do not. The article is old but you may have some luck with the options listed.
