Same for me.

Fresh FC3/i386 install ( GNOME ).

 - insert CD
 - wait for icon appearing on desktop
 - right click, select Eject

It is umnounted, but not ejected, it gives an error dialog about
ejecting failed.

Happens with CD-RW and CD-ROM units ( ATAPI ).

I have the same problem but for me is very occasional, It rarely
happens and always with the same CDs (they are a bit old and ugly). 
The ones I usually use works fine without any problem.

To be more specific about this problem the actual error message is:
"eject: unable to eject, last error: Invalid argument".

The CD got unmounted but the CD drive wont eject it.  I can eject it
as root in the console (# eject /dev/cdrom) and even in the console I
get the very same error message as in nautilus.

For more information please check this mail message:

The problem disappeared after updating my system. Don't know which
package did the trick, I installed a full CD of updates (official
updates from
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/3/i386/ ).
