After burning trying to burn a cd with too much information on it, it ended up with this error. 

only wrote -1 of 37632 bytes: Input/output error

burncd: ioctl(CDRIOCFLUSH): Input/output error

But the cd was stuck in the drive, and would not respond when I pressed the eject button. I was just wondering if this was a common error or just a bug that since been fixed. Also if this happens again, is there a way to force a cd eject without rebooting? I am running FreeBSD-5.2-RELEASE. Thanks for the help.
