DVD Stuck in WIndows 7 Laptop

Last Modified: 2015-03-04
I put a DVD into the DVD Player on my laptop that is running WIndows 7

It did not start the DVD player

I go to Computer->DVD/CD RW Drive, and it says to Insert a disk, so Windows does not think a disk is in the driver.

I hit the button on the DVD to Eject it.  It did not eject, but it did flash the  green light on the DVD once I lift my finger from the Eject button, but it does not eject the disk.

Then I went to CDomputer->DVD/CD RW driver,.  I performed a Rt click, and hit Eject.  At taht point it flashed the green light on the DVD driver, but did not eject.

How can I resolve this
