    If you're using Windows, this should work (you'll have to replace the cd drive letter) -

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <windows.h>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
    	
    	DWORD bytes;
    	HANDLE HCDrom = CreateFile("\\\\.\\F:",GENERIC_READ,0,0,OPEN_EXISTING,0,0);
    
    	if(HCDrom==INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
    		cout << "error";
    
    	DeviceIoControl(HCDrom,IOCTL_STORAGE_EJECT_MEDIA, 0, 0,0, 0,&bytes,0);
    	return 0;
    }
