Unfortunately, this one wasn't slot loading, it was the latest iMac with DVD 
authoring, etc.  There is actually a little gear wheel under the tray, which 
you need to turn manually to forcefully eject.  I had a fair idea, but didn't 
want to invalidate the warranty as it fell over within 2 hours of it being 
delivered. ;)
