Those two systems probably use a different method to request an eject
operation.  Does 'eject' work from the command line at all on your system?

Regarding the CD/DVD mountpoint, I am not entirely comfortable using the
disk volume name as the mountpoint.  I am especially concerned about what
might happen if more than one disk uses the same name--normally this
results in a nested mount on Linux, which is NOT what would be desired in
this case.
