The CD/DVD drive will of course not eject if used by the guest, otherwise the guest could crash because the drive vanished. Note that unmounting the drive from the VBox menu will not work without notification if the image/drive is still used by the guest.

But after terminating the VM, ejecting the drive should be possible in any case. If not, please check if there are hidden instance of VirtualBox and/or VBoxSVC still running. If so, kill these instances first an try again.

Please respond.
