I found that this happens because the CD is currently (auto)mounted.
 From nautilus the only option is eject. When you put the disc back in,
it gets mounted again :~{

Some kind folks mentioned gnome-umount:
# gnome-umount -d /dev/cdrw
then use your writing tools (eg k3b...)
I am using KDE. Does someone know how to disable automount on KDE?
