Cant unmount CD-Rom with user

I have a problem with unmounting CD-ROM with a user for about a month, any the only way to unmount is to either enter as root or do su and then umount /media/cdrom0. I tested the Fstab list already and I believe that the problem is not in it but just for the sake of testing heres the current fstab file
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda1       /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/hda5       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
furthermore I checked user privileges (Desktop -> Administration -> Users and Groups) and according to it I do have privileges for it... now heres the actual 'error' it gives while trying to unmount with a user

umount: only root can unmount /dev/hdc from /media/cdrom0
eject: unmount of `/media/cdrom0' failed
Does anyone have a clue about what it can be?
