may be u are in the cdrom directory when u issue the umount /dev/cdrom commmand
Try going to a different directory other that where it is mounted and then issue the umount command.

mount /dev/cdrom
cd /mnt/cdrom
umount /dev/cdrom <<<------------ doesnt work
cd    <<<------------ change to home directory
umount /dev/cdrom <<<--- must work
