Need some help on my cd/dvd drive

alright hey guys,

At school, my teacher needed some help with his computer. He showed me his desktop and said that the dvd drive wont eject. Strangely, i went on my computer and the dvd/cd drive was not there. Only his hard disk and some folders on my computer. I pressed the eject button on his dvd cd drive and it wouldnt eject. I told him i would come up with a solution later so now i need your help. What is causing this problem? Its strange how it wouldnt eject and its not in my computer. I tried manuel eject with a paper clip and that still didnt work !! He told me that first when he got the computer, it worked perfectly and out of no where, this problem has occured. He told me its been going for years but its starting to annoy him. I would like to be the "hero" in this case and fix it but i can't figure out what the hell is going on. I checked online and the computer specs are:
