Sadly, with the advancement of gizmos, the majority of optical drives no longer have a spring-loaded ejection, but some form of motor-driven mechanism. The spring-loaded version is much simpler, but it too can find some way to stop functioning. The motor-driven setups... when they fail, usually require careful dissection, or more permanent 'solutions' to get the disc back. (Really, once those start failing, most fixes are just a limp-along patch until something else goes. Best to start looking for the replacement unit)
