I recon either the power cable has become disconnected or the unit has died,most units have a small hole on the front to manually eject.Some software locks the draw shut but because you have "lost" the unit out of my computor i doubt if thats the case!

Try shutting down the computer, not restart, then switch on again. Then press the CD Drive button to open.

It's worked for me on a occasions when the tray has stuck.

Is it in device manager, if so delete the drive and reboot, should find it again.
