The physical way to do this is to insert a straightened paper clip into the 
small hole that can be found on the front of any DVD player.  It will 
probably go in a fair distance when you will feel some resistance.  Continue 
to push and it will manually release the tray.  Grab the tray by the edges 
and pull out.
