Hey all. I borrowed a friends P2000, and downloaded some photos from it onto my PC.
However, now that I've finished, and I want to disconnect it I do the whole 'Safely Remove Hardware'thing, but get an error message 'The device 'Generic' cannot be stopped right now. Try stopping the device again later.'
Also, the PS2000 has a message on it 'Connecting to PC. Do not turn off power or disconnect the USB before the operation is complete.'
Any help would be welcome. If I just disconnect, will I lose all his photos??

Are you connecting your phone as a Mass Storage Device?
From the home screen, attach one end of the Motorola Original
Enhanced USB cable to your phone and the other end to a USB port on
On your phone, press Yes to use the phone as a portable USB storage device. Note: When connected as a storage device the phone cannot perform regular phone activities. Disconnect to resume normal operation.
On the PC, open the My Computer window and find where your phone displays as a MassStorage icon. Double click the MassStorageDevice icon.
Drag and drop files between your computer and phone.
When finished, remove the phone safely from your computer. Right click the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon at the bottom of your computer screen, then select "USB Mass Storage Device" and click Stop.
Select USB Mass Storage Device and click OK. Now it is safe to disconnect the cable. When the cable is disconnected, the phone restarts
Do you have a memeory card reader? They work a lot faster than cable transfer. Get one if you don't, for about $10 or so, or borrow one to test your card. Then see if your memory card (the "disk") displays your pictures onto the computer through the card reader. If it does, your friend might have physically damaged the USB cable connector on the camera or the card socket inside the battery compartment (or, of course, you might have done so yourself somehow). As long as you have the card reader you'll still be able to transfer images.
If the pictures don't show up on the card reader, it's more likely the card itself was damaged, though you say you tried another card. If you've already downloaded the pictures, try reformatting the card (which will erase everything) and then give it another shot.
