USB Mass Storage Device removal

I use a little Sandisk Cruzer USB flash drive. Whenever I want to take it out of my Windows XP machine, it says, “The device ‘Generic volume’ cannot be stopped right now. Try stopping the device again later.” Why doesn’t it tell me why not? Like maybe saying, “The device has these files open…” or “these applications are running from the device…” I end up yanking it out anyway between blinks of the activity light. oh well.

  1. Maybe you should unmount the USB Flash Drive. In some cases, you can lose data.
