I did the same silly thing today but I did get the mini disc out. The method is: stick some double-sided tape on one side of a calling card; slip the card into the cd rom on the top of the mini disc (with the side with tape facing down); when they touch together, put the calling card out. It worked for me. My cd rom works fine after that. Good luck. :)

Wendy, thank you, thank you, thank you. I followed your advice and rescued a stuck DVD from my Macbook. You're a saviour.

This is so unfortunate! Because you're not supposed to use small CDs in your drive. All you can do now is call for a hardware support, or, if you are a hardware freak yourself, you can as well as... well, not recommended. :)
