Unable to stop USB device for safe removal
by darrenstuart - 5/17/10 2:26 AM
Often when I try & safely remove a USB Mass Storage Device a Problem message appears to advise it's still in use suggesting, "I close any programs or windows that might be using the device, and then try again later".
Any/ all programs are closed & it doesn't matter how long I wait, it cannot be removed safely. I've had a look at Task Manager Processes and Services for anything obvious but I don't really know what I'm looking at so leave those alone. I run CCleaner to no avail & end up shutting down my machine as a last resort.
My machine is a HP Compaq Presario A900 Notebook PC & OS is 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2.
Any ideas guys?
