Typing in caps is not needed, hard to read and can be deemed as being rude when trying to ask for FREE help. I have removed the capitalization.

Hi Sharon!

Look on the front of your CD-ROM drive, you should see a very small hole on the right below the tray for the CD-ROM drive. What you need to do is get a paperclip and straighten it out and then stick one end into that hole. This hole is the emergency release for the CD-ROM drive in case it won't open.

Thanks a lot for your fast reply. I did manage to get the cd out but now it won't close :s Is that the end of the driver?

Sounds like it. They are pretty cheap to replace anyways.
