Question about Vantec Nexstar Computers & Internet
Using latest (ESATA+USB3) model of dual-port Vantec Nexstar with Windows 7. Drives mount, but not as removable drives as one would expect. Once a drive is mounted, it is not possible to "eject/unmount" the drive like a regular pocket drive. This makes swapping drives somewhat problematic, as Windows must be shutdown to spin down and remove the drives safely. Thus, the product is not really working as advertised, though it works perfectly under OSX as a removable drive with the same disks and ESATA connection.

On windows seven there is no eject or remove safely in the main menu. Use mouse click <START> <Devices and Printers> find the device then right click and then select <Eject> or <Remove Safely>
Voil? you now can remove device without having to shut down computer.

No device-drivers are needed. Just connect this USB device, and Windows will recognize it. If there is a "one-touch-backup" button, it won't work, but you can still use drag-and-drop to copy files from your internal disk-drive to this external disk-drive.

I just bought the 260U2, same deal. Take it back and demand a discount for one that works. Bring your hard drive and confirm it in the store.
