Is it plugged into power? It may have come loose. Have you tried ejecting by clicking eject in My Computer?

Will it open if you go to My Computer and right-click on the drive and select eject? How old is it? They do go bad

This might just be what I've heard and it's wrong, but I think that pushing the CD Drive in manually vs. pressing the button to make the tray go in, can lower the life of the drive's tray motor thing.

If it doesn't open by pressing the button or by selecting Eject in My Computer - then it's likely that the drive is broken. I've had very limited success in taking these apart to fix the drawer mechanism - so the likely "fix" is to try another drive to see if it works.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Hopefully yours is under warranty. It sounds like its dead. My DVD drive recently did this to me too, and I returned it.

drives lock up for various reasons, sometimes a reboot will fix, other times a total shutdown is necessary

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
