8cm disk stuck in CD-rom drive

I put in a smaller disk than the usual size of a CD-rom, the
computer didn't register that it's in there, so it doesn't send it
back out when I press the eject button

Does anyone know how I can get it out again?

Thanks,
Nicola

Forgot to say it's an apple powerbook

The powerbook uses a slot-loading drive which can't read the
smaller discs... meaning the disc is stuck. You have to take your
powerbook to an apple service center to have them remove it for
you because the drive can't eject it. Good luck, read the warnings
next time.

Nah, we got it out with the power of a piece of paper, woo.
