It's probably still mounted  (you cannot open your cd drive mounted on
Linux. type 'mount' and have a look. No process must be using the drive
or be in the drive directory in order to unmount successfully. fuser
/(cd-drive-mount-point) outputs the process number of any shells still
being in /cdrom or whereever
Your GUI probably handles auto-fs, don't know about that, though.
