CD Drive Wont Release CD

As described, the CD went in and refuses to eject. It plays normally but wont eject the damn thing. Switching it off and on does nothing. Has this happened to anyone? Is there a way to get the thing out without taking it apart?
A paper clip is optimal for the size of hole. (Obviously you have to straighten it out!)

Quite a firm push is needed and a pin might slip past the operating lever and jam. The end of a paper clip is less likely to.
As has been said, the little hole in the front of the drive is there for this very purpose, but if you can't find a paperclip (FFS) try this.

Go to 'my computer' right click on the approriate drive, from the drop down menu left click 'eject'.

Has anything worked yet? The action occuring on this post and the Dale Farm business, are making my trousers shrink I'm so excited.
