If the player is stuck inside the flash and player cant eject the dvd you can do:

turn off player
hold eject
turn on player but HOLD eject
keep holding eject for 10 seconds

The cd will now eject

if you have a vr-558 you need to:

turn off player
hold default button (its on the back, you need a paperclip)
turn on player but HOLD default button
keep holding default button for 10 seconds

The cd will now eject


If your player does dont accept a new burn iso for flashing you can try to:

burn at low speed ! 
try to create a bootdvd instead of a bootcd (you can do this with nero)

If it still fail its possible your DVD is dying
