I have an internal ls120 drive (ide) and tried eject on it. I get some
activity from the drive, but it does not eject. I get:
"eject: CDROMEJECT ioctl failed for `/dev/hdc': Input/output error"
I just tried eject with my cdrom and it wouldn't work. I had xplaycd
up, but not running. I killed xplaycd and fired eject up and the cdrom
popped out. Is it possible you have something like xplaycd running
that's stopping eject from working??
