Re: Cant eject any external drives..any ideas?
someone on another forum indirectly solved my problem they told me this
"go into device manager and find your external disks and ipod.
right click on the first drive and hit properties
under the policies tab, there should be something along the lines of performance and quick removal stuff. click the radio button that says "Quick Removal."
do those same steps for your other drives. if you find your ipod, windows thinks mine is a digital camera, do thaose same steps for it, if possible.
now you don't have to use the "safely remove hardware" button again! It MAY reduce disk performance, but it is also safer if, say a dog or little kid trips over the cord and yanks it out. (I never noticed a difference in performance anyways, but that's just my opinion)"
so i went to do this and it was already on this setting i changed it to the other option and im able to eject fine now
so now my question is is one really better then the other.. and if i leave it on the one he told me about that means i can just pull the plug on my device without worry?
