one main reason for linux to refuse ejecting is that the CD is locked.
this can happen if the CD is mounted for one instance. is it mounted? if
so, unmount it first. usually, if you're mounting CDs using the "device
notifier", things are automatic, and unmounting happens automagically.
but in your case, i'm seeing something else. sr0 refers to the device of
the optical drive, and it has several buffer errors and read errors. i
am guessing the physical media is damaged in the drive. can you try and
remove the CD from the tray, close the tray, and try ejecting it while
empty from the button, and see if it works. if it does, then the problem
was the kernel has locked the CD as it was still trying to identify it
or something. try verifying again by suing another disc that you're sure
is clean and undamaged.
hope this helps
