If you try to burn an optical media disc and for some reason it fails (the Finder is notorious for this...stupid .DS_Store files...) and you then try to eject it and can't no matter how many times you hit the Eject key or try ejecting in Toast, try launching Disk Utility and highlighting the optical disc and hitting eject in the toolbar. Usually, the disc will pop right out.
(Btw, recently I had a DVD+r DL disc that failed to burn in the Finder but trying the next disc in the spindle worked fine with Toast. Grrr.)
