What do you get if you do this after you give the DVD about 30 seconds to
spin up?


Also, what if you try this:

eject /dev/cdrom

Finally, I'm sure this is obvious, but are you unmounting the DVD first?
Also, you say you have both a DVD writer and BD reader.  Does the writer
read more than one DVD?  Have you checked /etc/udev/rules.d just in case?
