changing cds for wine? umount ->device is busy


I'm installing baldur's gate which is on 2 CDs and I mount those CDs manually. However when I have to change the CDs I need to unmount the CDs and when I run the umount command as root or as user it says device is busy and I can't change cds. Is there a way to override this cause I want to install a few more things with more CDs
