force eject?


is there any way to force the cd-r to eject through a command line? mine won't give up my cd......and lecturing it sternly doesn't seem to help either.. so I thought maybe there's something I can do in linux to force it to spit it out?

not sure but I think it's supposed to behave like that if it's mounted... run that umount command Trinity posted and you should be able to eject it
