i had the same problem, but i found a simple solution. Go to Apple CD player and press eject CD. Works like a charm.

If you have the Control Strip enabled, you can use the Eject section.

Here's a 3rd Party option from Macally @ http://www.macally.com/techsupport/faq/faq_iwebkey.html( I haven't tried this myself ):

1. Download the OpenTray folder file. (Clicking on the link will automatically download the file to your Desktop)
2. Copy the extension into yor Extensions Folder
3. Restart your computer
4. Press command+Esc, the CD tray will open or close
