Is there some program running, if so how do I find it, to shut it down.? Or is there some other issue.?
You need to post your distribution and version. Are you running in X? What window manager or desktop?
But at a guess, there's some kind of daemon running that's watching your cd drive. Find that daemon and kill it.
Try ps ax at the command line and look for something with cd in the command name.
