Jammed CD with Roxio Direct CD

Never ever put a formatted CD in your CD-R drive and try either to write, read it. It will just jam and if you try to exit it will give an error something about the Roxio direct CD kernel has locked
the object. In this case take a paper clip straigten the clip and push it in the hole drive. It will go in about a inch or an inch and half. This will pop the CD tray and you can pull out your CD and throw away your formatted CD. It only costs so 50 cents.

Funny to note that i had the exact same problem last night.

The pin idea sounds good but I was able to remove my CD by just restarting the computer.Worth a try?

Well Roxio Direct CD kernel puts a lock on the CD drive and rebooting sometimes doesn't help. Infact if DirectCD hangs, it leads to a blue screen of death
