Hi My name isXXXXX hope i can help you

Here are some more tricks to eject the disk if it not shows in Finder.
  • Restart your Mac and immediately hold down the left/primary mouse button. This may take some time, but keep it held down until the disk ejects
  • Or Restart your Mac and immediately hold down the eject key on your keyboard. Keep it held down until the disk ejects

Get a business card or other small piece of paper made out of heavier-weight stock. Slip it into the disc slot (hold on tight) and try to disrupt the rotation of the spinning disc. If the drive senses the disc is spinning improperly it will spits it out.

See this youtube video, another method.

If the above method didn't worked, i think it might be stuck in there. In that case, you have to take it to the Apple store.
