CD/DVD get trapped

A paper clip is a small but useful thing. In general, a paper clip is used to stick sheets of paper together. But I ever used it in an uncommon way.

One day when I was operating my computer, the light went out. Unfortunately, my CD was still trapped in the CD-ROM drive. The CD belonged to my friend and I had to return it at that very moment. Suddenly, I saw a paper clip near my computer. Then I took it and made it straight. After that, I put the straight paper clip into the small hole on the CD-ROM drive. (Look at the picture below!) I gave a little pressure and then… Aha! I made it! The CD tray of the CD-ROM drive was open and I could take the CD out of the drive. Maybe you can try this way when you come across the same problem.
