If you are sure that no read/write applications are running, you can very well go ahead and remove it without ejecting the flash drive, it won't cause any damage.

CARD READER mini sd/sdhc/mmc wil not work in my dell Lap top. The disc was inserted but nothing showed on the terminal and now the disc will not eject. my dell is the studio model with windows vista....

Was it inserted correctly? It is possible it was inserted upside down. It does happen and sadly does not take a lot of force to accomplish. With a lot of patience and gently convincing it will come out. Also, some laptops (and desktops) depending on the age of the motherboard will absolutely not read the newer cards. You could have a grand mixture of both. I suggest trying to gently push and eject your card a few times. If this does not release the card then gently push then pull on the card a few times. This should release it. I have not seen one remain stuck yet.

Dives on Dimension 8250 will not read without first using "eject"

First thing I would try is to go into windows device manager and uninstall both drives. Now turn off the PC and reboot it. Let Windows plug and play find and reinstall the drives. If it cannot find drivers, and you don't have the driver disks, tell it to look in c:\windows\system or c:\windows\system32, your current driver sould be in those folders. Gordon, if this doesn't do the trick, let me know and we'll move on to other possibles; but this should fix this problem about 80% on the time.

Any time i try to eject a combo comes up with the message that the flash drive has a program running even though all file are closed. how do i get arround the problem.

Cruzer's run a program when they install and should appear on the screen as a red Cruzer icon. If you click on this when you want to remove the you can then select the Eject tab on the bottom of the Cruzer popup. Use this rather than the windows eject which does not work too well.

Exposed film cartridge will not eject.

Well, I'm not sure exactly what I did, but the problem is solved. I opened the case to see if I could get the film out that way, but it would have entailed totally disassembling the camera, and I didn't want to do that. I put the case back on and tried the manual rewind button, which wouldn't work before. It rewound the film this time, and I was able to eject the cartridge. So I don't know exactly what the problem was or what I did that fixed it, but the camera is working properly now!

Jammed tape in Sony camcorder

There is no manual eject.
The only way is to disassemble the camera outer shell, then remove the drive mechanism and using a 4.5 V power supply power the eject mechanism.
It takes 30 min of work when you know how to do it. If you find the service manual (free somewhere in internet) it will tell you how to open the camera.
Hope this helps.

Laura Have you tryed to unplug the unit for a bit and try pluging back in to the wall and press the eject button before anything else!! if that dosent work try pressing and holding the power button and at the same time press the eject button. If that dosent work then theres a mechanical or electrical fault thats causing it to not function vproperly and its time for a repair person to assit you. Good Luck
