SOLVED: How do I eject a disk? - Apple USB SuperDrive - iFixit

I would get a clicking sound from the drive on the restart but the disc would not eject. I unattached the drive and then reattached it and now the CD does not show up in the Finder sidebar at all. I used drutil also, got a clicking sound from the drive but would not object. Does it sound like now the drive is destroyed or are there any suggestions how to get that disc out?

Thanks so much for any help! If the drive is making noises but the disk does not come out, it is possibly hitting or caught on the edge of the slot.

Space Photos of the Week: The Jupiter Chronicles

I have had success in using something like a business card or piece of paper and inserting it above or below the edge of the disk or using two cards, one above the disk and one below the disk. When the disk is being pushed out by the mechanism, rather than hitting the edge of the slot, it slides along the card and does not get prevented from being ejected.
