 Make sure that any open folders or programs that are accessing
/mnt/cdrom or *did* access it are closed. If all else fails 
then open a terminal like gnome-terminal or xterm or konsole
and type
umount -f /dev/cdrom
that will force the CD-ROM to be unmounted. If it still gives you 
fits then 

umount -f /dev/cdrom

in the terminal. 
In Gnome look under preferences -> CD properties to set the preferences.
I turned off use auto-run and open a folder for mounted CD ROM and
that helped to reduce the problems.
