unmount cd drive does not work


hey,
When I try to unmount a cd or dvd from my dvd burner, using kde I get an error ("Device busy").
I closed all the programs that might access it, but still doesn't work.
I think lsof /media/cdrom gives you all the files that are open, but it is empty. Is that normal?
Also, umount /media/cdrom and umount/media/cdrom -f doesn't work either (not even as root).

What do I do?

try
fuser -v /media/cdrom
and see if that gives you clue about what's tying it up

thanks for your reply.
I get following output:

fuser -v /media/cdrom

USER PID ACCESS COMMAND
/media/cdrom root kernel mount /media/cdrom0

How does that help me?
