I have a problem with my CD drive, or it's configuration, I have attempted to solve it on my own and failed...
I get a dialog box periodically, (like every few minutes), which says "Can not eject Volume, you are not privileged to eject this device." At the same time, I also get hundreds of the following items in my /var/log/messages file:
If I remove the data connector from the back of my CD drive all is well, and I never see the message via the dialog box, nor get the hundreds of log entries in /var/log/messages... However I also don't have a CD drive...

Any help would be appreciated...
Can you post the output of
