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?

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.

This model lacks screws, but a locking button on...
