Your device has storage.requires_eject=false -- so exo-eject won't do 
anything but unmount all volumes.

Give 'eject -v /dev/whatever' a try *as root*.  Often the SCSI eject 
command will work on drives like that.  See if it fixes your problem. 
If it does, you might try adding a HAL .fdi file to your system that 
will set requires_eject properly for your drive.
