Re-re-ripping my CD collection (this is the last time, honest!) I thoughtlessly put a small three-inch bonus CD into the slot drive. The MacBook didn’t swallow it, but I couldn’t get it out either. Eventually I discovered I could force eject via the following command in a Terminal window (Applications > Utilities > Terminal):

    sudo drutil eject

If that doesn’t work for you, maybe some of the suggestions over here will. (The most popular one seems to be wrapping sticky tape around a piece of card and fishing the disc out.)
