Thank you for your prompt reply. Actually, the emergency eject key did not open the drive so once again I removed the drive from the computer. This time I used brute force to pull the tray out from the drive. The cause of the problem was unrelated to my burner or software. It was strictly operator error. I had failed to push the CD down over the spindle far enough to hold it in place. That caused the disc to move and bind in the door. Perhaps the eject key helped get the door open because I did exert pressure on the key at the same time I forcefully pulled out on the door. Fortunately, I did not damage the drive. I put a disk in it and it reads fine and ejects properly now.
Once again. Thank you very much.
