Try it again, sometimes it takes a second try, also make sure that you have nothing from the pen drive open (files folder views or programs)

You have to close all open files on that drive first - the drive cannot be stopped when there are files open on it.
Try closing all the applications that use files from that disk, and also any windows in which you see the contents of the drive.
Then try safe removal again.

Make sure you have all programs and folders closed. Then try stopping usb mass storage, there should be more then one option so try removing the drive itself on the list. If that doesn't work. I myself would probably just restart the computer. Then try again.
Thanks,

The device Generic Volume cannot be stopped right now. try stopping the device again later. on Window XP


If you tried to stop your external hard drive with it open in Windows Explorer, You will get this message. You cannot disconnect the drive in this condition. Even if you close Windows Explorer after, Windows still thinks it is open. The best thing to do, is restart Windows and when the screen goes black, shut the power off to the external drive or disconnect the USB cable. Disconnecting in any other way causes Windows to have problems with USB devices in the future.
