The reader would at least spin up the disc and try to read the TOC (table of contents) before realising it didn't have the data disc. On that basis, there may be some mileage in trying a lens cleaning disc, though I've had several iffy audio CD players and have yet to find that a cleaning disc resulted in any improvement.
Ejecting is an unusual fault though, and I don't think it's symptomatic of read errors. I'd be more inclined to suspect a fault in the loading mechanism, with the disc failing to seat on the spindle properly, or maybe the disc failing to spin up to speed. This could be symptomatic of a warped or cracked disc.
If you have a CD writer on your PC, try using Nero or similar to make a copy of the data disc. It's a long shot, but you just might find it works a better with a CD-R copy than it does with the original.
