Restart the pc - then if it still does not work try any of these:

1 - go into windows explorer and right click on the relevant drive and choose eject.

2 - straighten a paper clip and push into the little pin hole on the front of the drive - it will open the drive mechanically.

Check running programs to see if the culprit is in there.
