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.

Error 1407 external drive

That's a Mac error stating that the file you are trying to delete is currently being accessed.

First, close all open programs and try to delete the file. If that doesn't work, eject the drive by clicking the eject button in a Finder window. Disconnect the drive. Reboot. Then reattach the drive and immediately delete the file.

Sounds like your external drive might be bad. Try connecting it to another system and see what happens. If you can't get to read data on another system, the drive is bad.

Are you getting a window that pops up asking you to select which program to open with when you click on anything? If so your program file associations have been changed by a virus or infection.

Try restoring them by running the programs from the link below. Run each one of them. Don't worry, they are safe, tried and tested many times to get things back in order.

When trying to eject my usb flash drive, I get a message-- the device "generic volume" cannot be stopped now, try later . This has been locked up for about 2 hrs. now.

This happens when a program is still writing data to the USB when you are trying to unload it from your PC. Dont pull the stick out where possible, as this risks losing data. (Though most times it's fine in my opinion)

Generally, most people close off the programs that are no longer using the USB before they unload it but certain programs 'link' together. For example, depsite you closing the MS Word document after saving it to USB, MS Word is also directly 'linked' to MS Outlook. If your outlook is still running, this may affect it. Try closing ALL programs (where possible) and ejecting the volume.

Alternatively, download a program called "unlocker"

This will load a popup into the menu that shows when you right click the drive from 'computer' Just click the 'unlocker' command and the drive should eject normally.

Good luck!

Problem ejecting my fujitsu external drive even all programs has been closed, even if the laptop has already been restarted. how to eject safely without damaging the external hard drive?

With USB devices you can go down to the clock section of the task bar and click on the << symbol to expand it. Pass the mouse over the icons and find the one that says USB devices. Open the service and select the drive you want to remove. Then choose stop service and it should shut down the drive and give a message saying it is safe to remove the device. Good Luck

No communication

Is it displaying in device manager or it is not at all detecting. In that you may try with it some other system and same problem persist, there is possiblilty for damage. send it for warranty calim. Pen drive easily does not die. Check it in other system.

Any application or data is talking each other with computer and usb drive, then it gives warning try to close all application or any virus infection is there.
