I found that this happens because the CD is currently (auto)mounted.
 From nautilus the only option is eject. When you put the disc back in,
it gets mounted again :~{

Some kind folks mentioned gnome-umount:
# gnome-umount -d /dev/cdrw
then use your writing tools (eg k3b...)

I am using KDE. Does someone know how to disable automount on KDE?


So am I, and when kde brings up the what do I do with this window after inserting an audio cd for instance, I just tell it 'nothing', and 'mount' does not currently show it as mounted. I would assume that if it was a writable cd, that I should be able to proceed.
