    So here is what worked for me.

    What cause this behavior is something called GVFS
    so you have to disable it, just do this:

    Create a file named .xsessionrc in the $HOME directory with the following contents:

    #!/bin/bash
    GVFS_DISABLE_FUSE=1
    export GVFS_DISABLE_FUSE

    ->(Might need to do a chmod +x as well)

    Restart and the problem is solved.

    I have uninstalled everything starting with gvfs
    but the solution above solved my problem.

    since gvfs is only in gnome, your 'solution' can only work there..

    my understanding is that gvfs pretty much give near automatic
    discovery or M$ file systems on the local network..

    how is that going for you since you deleted it?

    I use KDE but the gvfs was there giving me the headache.
    But now that you spoke about M$ file systems I'll se if I still can access my Windows 7 NTFS Partition (dual boot because my wife needs that ) and shared folders in my VirtualBox Gest machines.

    i _think_ that while you may use KDE you have also installed Gnome,
    otherwise you wouldn't have (had) a ~/.gvfs (i think)

    and, i'm not *sure* that having a gvfs was the reason you couldn't
    eject a CD..

    instead, i _think_ the reason was more likely that the CD was still
    "in use" by something in your system--that was the problem (and, not
    being able to eject was simply a symptom of the problem)

    now, that something causing the problem _may_ have been gvfs, and if
    so my question would have been

    WHY is gvfs hanging on to the CD when it should not be?

    after learning WHY, i'd try to fix that problem..

    rather than deal with the symptom by removing the apparently errant
    gvfs..

    on the other hand, i guess you have done no damage..

    I have not installed Gnome but some program may had, I remember when I tried to uninstall WINE that some "dependencies" like Brasero would be uninstalled too, I have never installed Brasero, so something have installed this "for me".

    I think that GVFS was using it The problem was happening with every removable media, CD, DVD, USB HD, etc.
    After disabling GVFS everything worked, no more "Device in use" messages, eject ok with all kind os removable media.

    Have you read this reference? [kubuntu] KDE Device Notifier opens device in Nautilus not Dolphin - Ubuntu Forums
    First I thought that my problem was Nautilus because the contents of the CD was showing in a Nautilus window, uninstalled Nautilus (have never installed it too) e the problem persisted, only disabling or removing GVFS did the trick for me.
