DiscEject is a little but useful utility for Mac OS X that ejects the stuck CDs and DVDs. Is very fast and simple, and is successfull while other methods fail. You just open DiscEject or drag&drop a stuck CD or DVD into it, and the disc (if no application uses it) in 1 second is out!
DiscEject can also be used to eject non-stuck discs!
Note that it won't work on remote disc drives (for example the MacBook Air).
