    Is your computer a laptop? Maybe you could shake it out when turning the computer with that side down.

    Carefully, go fishing with tape that attached to something that will fit into that slot.

    DH said there should be a pinhole in front of drive that you can GENTLY insert opened paperclip in and it will open drive.

    Did this once and used twizzers (not sure if spelled right) and lots of patients very carefully. Good luck.

    Btw, I was successful but it took some time.

    Is it still in the slot- or did it fall all the way into the case of the computer? if it's loose in the case it's simple to take the side cover off most of them - just unplug it and loosen a couple of thumb screws
