Unless your Debian installation is seriously screwed up,  and in fact I would 
say that even your kernel must have something bad happening to it, if this 
has not happened automatically.

All you need to do is to add the user to the cdrom group for it to work 
properly. And if he can mount the device he is probably already part of the 
cdrom group, making your advice totally redundant.

I still maintain that he is probably missing the 'eject' package. It's a 
simple thing to check, and it is often the cause of this problem. I have had 
it myself plenty of times.
