Question about Computers & Internet
I connected a usb external hard drive to download data from a laptop. Somehow the drive is listed as in the hard drive C. It says I cannot eject because a program is still using it. How do I get it out safely?
Turn off your computer/laptop and then start it again. Go to the task bar and click the little arrow that is pointing up. Right click the USB sign and hit eject. If it does not work then turn of your computer/laptop. Sence it is off no damage should accure so just pull it out. Hope this helps.

Try the drives in another usb port set, for example at the back or the front of the computer in a diffrent set of plugs than where the printer is.

Your drive is being recognized. However, your computer only has USB 1.1 so you are being notified that USB 2.0 is faster. This message is FYI and will not prevent you from accessing the drive.
After you see that message you should see your external drive in "My Computer" If you don't see the drive you probably need to assign an available drive letter to drive.
Open Windows Help and Support.
Search for "drive letters" and find "assigning drive letters"
This will walk you through the process.

What OS are you running? XP, Vista, 7, etc? In Control Panel where you see the yellow exclamation mark, right click and select Update Driver. When it asks where to find the driver, tell it to search the internet.
If it does not update, then go to the Samsung website to locate the drivers for your computer and OS.
