From: George Styles (george_at_ripnet.co.uk)
I find that Windows takes 2 attempts to unplug it usually - the first
attempt it fails, the second it works.
I have written a batch file, which calls
deveject "USB Mass Storage Device"
100 times. Usually by the time it has run, i get a succesfully ejected
message. Deveject is (i believe) a VERY useful utility written by someone on
this group... not sure who, as it has no info in the exe...
