I've never had to close *all* explorer windows to
successfully stop the device with XP, only those open
to the Archos disk, but sometimes if I tried to stop
shortly after writing to the disk, it would fail the
first time and then succeed on the second try.

I got rid of those problems now that I have set the
device properties to have the caching disabled. Now I
can just pull the USB plug without doing anything else
and I get no warnings, plus any open explorer windows
to the Archos disk simply disappear when it is
