hi and welcome to the forums
now there should be a little hole on the front of the drive that you put a paperclip into(bend the paper clip out) to release the drive catch.(with the power off)
in the computer menu find the cd drive and see if you can right click on it and in the context menu click eject?(see video)

An error ocurred while ejecting DVD RW (E)
Inquisator 3.1be

No error codes

Bought this PC used about a year ago and my guess is the person before has stuck something plastic in the release hole and its snapped blocking the hole,only thing i can think off!!!

No no files waiting to be write/burned!
