I don't know what "standard" operations you know, please tell us what you've tried. Start up holding the mouse down.

I have the same problem. "standard" operations for me are these to de-mount the drive by system operations, no mechanical procedures.

Alex - If it's not showing on the desktop you can't de-mount. Mayers' answer here is to force the dis-mount of the CD via the boot up controls (in this case holding the track button down when the system is restarted).
