can't umount cdrom

I meet this problem for many times already, could suggest how can I umount the cdrom . thx in advance.

# umount /mnt/cdrom
umount: /mnt/cdrom: device is busy
# lsof /mnt/cdrom
# fuser /mnt/cdrom
No process references; use -v for the complete list
# fuser -v /mnt/cdrom

/mnt/cdrom root kernel mount /mnt/cdrom
