Cake knife with double-sided sticky tape worked a treat! The car's previous owners had jammed two CDs into a player meant for one. Once I got the first CD out the second ejected normally. Result!

Thankyou, sticky tape around a thin bladed knife, one i use for spreading butter worked for me. Press eject at the same time you try to pull it out.

Works, Brilliant! got 2 discs stuck in my astra and didnt know how to get them out. i tried taking unit out (factory installed) but it had no manual eject button asnd only resulted in my marking the centre console.
Used a bread knife with stickytape and it worked within 30 seconds!! Thank you.

the emery board inserted right the way in and push the eject button worked like a dream but found i had to turn off the player and turn on again to eject the second one. thanks for the tip its saved me around sixty pounds. glen from penzance

Oh. My. God.

Just tried this AND IT WORKED! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

(My mother forget she'd left her CD in the stereo of my '06 CTS and then THOUGHT she was putting her CD in. Result= two jammed in player! In a car I haven't had 2 months.)

Not brave enough tonight to see if it's working now. Just glad the CDs came out.

Thank you Steve.

We've just had almost exactly the same problem with a zafira on a test drive... Someone had accidentally put the cd in the sat nav drive on top of the sat nav disc. After quite a few attempts with a knife we tried a soft emery board, i slid it in almost to the back of the unit above both discs and held down the eject button. Whether it was by luck rather than judgement the top CD slid out and the mechanism still worked to eject the sat nav disc. As both the sat nav and cd drives are essentially the same it might be worth a try.
There are some very relieved faces around here at the moment... good luck
