My unix is really rusty, I'm getting back into the swing. All I meant
was to try and make sure nothing was using the CD, but if the umount is
working, my advice has no relevance. I just did some playing around,
I'm also using Ubuntu hardy, give this a shot:
sudo umount /media/cdrom0
sudo mount /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0
There are symlinks for /media/cdrom > /media/cdrom0 and I got error
trying to mount /dev/cdrom so I went with the block device? I am not
even sure that's the right term. But I did have errors similar to yours
until I used these commands. I still get a message about mounting it
as read-only, which isn't surprising since it's a CDROM.
mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
