Removing USB pens
Posted: Sun Mar 11, 2012 1:16 pm
I don't if this is a Mint question or an XFCE question. I'm running Lisa main edition but with XFCE instead of Gnome under mint4win on my HP laptop. Every time I select the option to eject a USB pen drive, I get a message saying there is data being written to the drive and not to remove it. This happens even when I've only inserted the USB pen to have a look at what's on it and I haven't actually done anything with it. On other occasions the red light on the USB pen has been steady, which I thought meant the file operations were finished and it was ready for removal, and the drive name vanishes from the Thunar window. I've had to ignore the messages so I can remove the pens, but how can I know whether a USB pen really is ready for removal or not?
