When you try to eject does it attempt to eject?
On both of machines the eject button doesn't operate in linux, I have to right-click on the cd on desktop to unmount then, right-click again & the option to eject is there.

It does not do anything. It doesn't make a sound.

I tried sudo Wodim --eject cdrom and that failed:

Code:
o@o-HP-Compaq-6910p-GH715AW-ABA:~$ sudo wodim --eject cdrom
wodim: No write mode specified.
wodim: Assuming -tao mode.
wodim: Future versions of wodim may have different drive dependent defaults.
Device was not specified. Trying to find an appropriate drive...
Detected CD-R drive: /dev/cdrw
Using /dev/cdrom of unknown capabilities
Error trying to open /dev/cdrom exclusively (Device or resource busy)... retrying in 1 second.

Cannot open SCSI driver!
For possible targets try 'wodim --devices' or 'wodim -scanbus'.
For possible transport specifiers try 'wodim dev=help'.
For IDE/ATAPI devices configuration, see the file README.ATAPI.setup from
the wodim documentation.

Might be helpful to look at the contents of /etc/fstab. The CD line from mine is:

/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0

Then perhaps try:

sudo umount /media/cdrom0 Or whatever is right for your thing. Note no n in umount.

mount on its own says what is mounted.

It returned no error so it unmounted, now all you have to do is issue eject command.

But you cdrom is not in fstab, this is what mine looks like.
It's may be possible for you to just copy & paste to it.
Since mine & lugoteehalt show the exact same line.

I think if you copy & paste the line for your fstab you'll be fine.
