In my case I added a dvd drive after install so none of my symlinks
pointed to the correct device which for some reason was mapped to
/dev/cdrom1. (Maybe because the old drive was cdrom0 even though I
removed it during the upgrade.) In my case your command would not return
the correct info but eject with the actual device name did the trick.
After that I re-linked the standard defines to my device.
