Maybe setcd is what you're looking for, I haven't tried it but from the 
description it looks like it will do that:
" Control the behaviour of your cdrom device
This program allows you to control the behaviour of your Linux cdrom
You can control: auto close, auto eject, medium type checking and
tray/caddy locking. You can get information on the volume name of CD-ROMs
and other data, and you can set the speed of your drive and choose a
disc from a jukebox.
The source of this package may be an example for cdrom player program
developers that wish to exploit the features of the linux cdrom
