While this is completely useless to you, It also happens with my cdrom at least half the time. So does anyone have any ideas?

Not really sure wether this helps you:

Remember to leave the folder, the device is mounted to ( close all konquerer/nautilus or whatever windows )
If that's done, try using "fuser". It shows processes accessing a file, to finde out, if there is still something or someone using the device.

In my case it seems to happen most when in CL. before booting x ??? Usually it's something like a text file which I have opened, read, and closed, the only way to get the cd out again is to reboot.
