If I mount a CD-ROM I like to see the CD-ROM name "Data CD 1" or
something. All I see are the generic names "cdrom0" or "cdrom1".

The program eject is installed and I can manually close and open the
tray with "eject" and "eject -t". If I unmount a CD-ROM, I like to have
Nautilus doing the eject for me.

That worked in the past. Maybe it is a problem of the Debian package
version I use. (Debian unstable)

I use gnome-volume-manager.
