Well that's because you unmounted it in iTunes.

Restart holding down the mouse's left button (if you have a multiple mouse button, if not just hold down the mouse button) till startup is complete. That should force the CD to eject.

In that case, there should be an Eject key on the keyboard. It should be the key in the uppermost right-hand corner.

If your keyboard doesn't have an "Eject" key and your running OSX, push F12.

Actually, hold F12 until the Eject symbol appears on-screen.

or reboot the computer and hold the CLICK button on the mouse when it reboots. Hold it in and then the cd will eject out.... easiest thing to do if you just cant get it to eject in MAC OS
