comment growisofs fails with unable to O_EXCL /dev/scd0: someone was in time to remount?
update: actually some mounting and careful unmounting do appear to have solved it. /proc/<pid>/cwd doesn't show the working directory of a process still CDed to a force-unmounted filesystem, so I did find a shell that might have been CDed to a CD while I was trying to burn the first time

comment growisofs fails with unable to O_EXCL /dev/scd0: someone was in time to remount?
had this issue too, with 12.04 LTS, default desktop GUI setup (running from the livecd on a USB stick, actually). Hit the eject button on the drive to umount and open the tray,but now growisofs can't open /dev/sr0 with O_EXCL. I guess it didn't really unmount? But there's nothing about it still in /proc/mounts, and no processes with a cwd in /media or anything. I can mount and unmount burned discs with no complaints or effects on the problem. Is there a bug open for this on Launchpad?

Probably your system locked up during whatever it does next, after the step that printed the message about disk caches
