If you are using ide-scsi for it, and your dev=0,0,0, this ejected mine

    cdrecord -eject dev=0,0,0

I would guess that ide-scsi modules need to be in place. My lsmod shows

    sg, ide-scsi, sr_mod cdrom scsi_mod

I don't think you necessarily need sr_mod (I use /dev/sr0) and I don't
think you would need cdrom either. But my *guess* would be you need scsi
generic (sg), scsi_mod and ide-scsi for sure. Insmod them if they are not
loaded. You may need to do it in different sequences until you hit it
right because of dependencies.
