Have you cleaned the lens of the Cd/DVD player yet? Just follow the steps in this MacOSX Hints post One fix for non-functioning SuperDrive (http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20120210114733216). It might help on most any older CD/DVD drive.

Did you ever consider that it might just be broken ! You might consider adding a disk eject icon to your upper panel and see if that works.

Have you tried right-clicking the DVD icon on the computer and selecting something similar to "eject" or "open tray" from the menu that pops up?

This is your laptop or something else
If this is laptop than follow my steps"
Watch screen carefully and press the eject button on the DVD drive as soon as the memory count begins.
Many stuck DVD drives can be solved by simply rebooting the laptop.
