SOURCE: The device Generic Volume cannot be stopped right

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.

SOURCE: Windows can't stop your 'Generic volume' device because in use

Two people above are retarded. It's a well known issue that M$ is too lazy to fix. Technically , closing programs that are using files/folders on the usb should work, but 99% of the time it doesnt work. Your best bet is to shut down windows, then unplug the usb device .

Some software in windows might be accessing the drive in background, use a software like USB unlocker so that you can close the software trying to access your drive.

The pc detect the card but it is not detected the scanner, what to do? i already change the cable with new one.


Many manufacturers of "scanners" have not released any device-drivers for the scanners for Microsoft Vista/7/8 -- they stopped with the Windows XP software. Check the manufacturer's web-site, to look for any declaration of "support" (or "unsupported") or any updated device-drivers for your specific model.

Windows drivers for Everex GPC2TC2512


Optical drive drivers are generic. You may have a virus. Try cleaning with an updated virus protection. You can also try booting into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Go to Device Manager by right clicking My Computer and Managing. Select Show Hidden Devices under View. Delete all optical drives. Reboot. Windows will auto load drivers. This should take care of the problem. You have bigger problem if it does not.

'the device 'Generic volume' cannot be stopped right now. Try stopping the device again later' This message comes up when I try to 'safely remove' my hard disk from my laptop. How can this be sorted? I do...


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.

Safely Remove Hardware


Sometimes this can happen with Generic Drivers.

Make sure you installed any drivers that came with the device, and if they didn't come with any try going to the Manufactures website and downloading the drivers.
