Unmount it first with the umount command:

# umount /dev/cdrom

Notes:

1. You don't type the #, that's just the prompt when you are root. To become root, type su and then enter your root password when prompted.

2. /dev/cdrom might not correspond to your CD ROM drive, replace it with whatever is correct for your machine. If in doubt, post a copy of your /etc/fstab here and we can tell you. You can open the file with any text editor, or type "cat /etc/fstab" in a terminal window and then copy the output.

HTH.

Or make sure nothing is accessing the cdrom and simply type eject at a terminal to eject the cdrom.

You don't need to change anything, but to unmount your CD-ROM drive, you'd do

# umount /dev/hdc
