    You should be able to open your drawer. The "door" should have a small hole in the front.Take a piece of slim wire and push gently into the hole,the drawer should open. Take out whatever disc is in there and close the drawer.Check the disc for damsage,maybe the noises were from an incorrectly loaded disc.
    I don't know if the music files are at fault,maybe there was a virus attached,anyway,dump the downloaded files,if you cannot use your burner to copy them to a cd.

    I get faulty discs stuck quite often.. a linux thing I won't bore you with..

    My way to get them out is easier than manually force ejecting the drawer (which I don't like doing unless).. Try this.. reboot and while the bios screen is up just press the eject button on the drive.. That usually does the trick.
