Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at if you are uncertain if they are bugs.

Hi! Usually the system block media ejection when the device is busy. Try right clicking over the dvd icon and selecting 'eject' (or 'unmount' and then pressing the eject button on your dvd drive)

Hope it helps!

Can you help with this problem?
