-Push the eject key located in the top-right corner on the keyboard. This should automatically eject the CD tray.

-Restart the computer and hold down the Mouse button. The CD tray should automatically eject. For your USB Flash drive:

-If it won't disappear (eject) normally from the desktop, shut down the computer completely, and remove it then.
