I seem to recall people having this problem, and that it was caused by
kio_audiocd. The situation was that if the services sidebar in konqueror was
opened even briefly while in the folder for the mounted cdrom, that
kio_audiocd would somehow grab the device and never let go, even once both
the sidebar and that instance of konqueror were closed. The workarounds
1) Don't open the services sidebar while a cdrom is mounted.
2) Close the konqueror instance, then kill all kio_audio instances.
This is debian bugs #284853, #293494, and #305709 if you want to look in those
for more information.
