    ejecting of cdrom

    Hi guys. I really need your quick help
    Simple silly question. How do I force cdrom to eject?
    I am installing a longman dictionary through wine and now i am at the stage when i need to insert CD2. However, linux won`t let me, since wine is using it.

    Re: ejecting of cdrom

    there a 'glitch' with Karmic, go through the file sytem (nautilus) and unmount from there
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

    Well, i am not sure if i am doing it right but it is not helping.
    Through nautilus, i enter filesystem -->media then right click on cdrom0 and unmount but it is still complaining.

    Isn` t there any simple command which i could run from terminal??

    wine eject d:
    Replace "d:" with whatever drive letter Wine assigns to your CD drive.

    Thanks, but again, not working for me for some reason. I got this:
    Code:
    wine eject
    No CD drive found
    or
    Code:
    wine eject d:
    Drive d: is not a CD or is not mounted
    Now I cant even stop the installation, which is not nice I`ll probably have to kill it.

    You could try it from the terminal:

    sudo eject /dev/cdrom

    If it's busy, it's likely because you're in the directory, either with an open app, or more likely, in a terminal.
