Windows 7: Opening a closed, uninstalled DVD Player with Disc inside

Opening a closed, uninstalled DVD Player with Disc inside

I swapped out my DVD player for a Blu Ray but I forgot to take out the GTA4 disc. Is there a way to get the disc out without damaging or reinstalling the DVD player?

Usually there's a small pinhole at the front of the drive where you can insert something like a straightened paper clip and pop the tray open.

Also you can just connect the proper desktop power cord to it just long enough to tap the front open/close button to eject it. You don't need to have the data cabe connected.

The pin didn't work but Doc's suggestion did. I was trying to avoid crawling under the desk to re-open the computer but that was the only choice and it worked.
