View Full Version : USB Drive Not Ejecting

12-08-2010, 09:31 AM
I have just purchased a Kingson USB Drive, and ever since I got it, my computer isn't ejecting any of my USB devices. I press eject, but nothing happens. I check it using unlocker, and nothing is running. Also when I do finally take it out, sometimes It doesn't show up when I plug it back in. Anyone know what's happening?

What version of windows ?

Welcome to PF1 :)

What USB ports are you using, front or the rear ports ?

Also when I do finally take it out, sometimes It doesn't show up when I plug it back in. When you eject the USB it turns off the port, so sometimes it takes a reboot to get the port to work again. My XP's do that quite a bit -- a real PITA.

Hi. Thanks.
I'm running windows XP. It's only started happening since I got this new flash drive. It is running of a USB hub connected to a front port.
I have finally got it to show up properly again, but now when I press eject, it still shows up under my computer as not being ejected.

Does this Hub have its own power supply?

Not everything likes hubs either

I've run the hub successfully for the last 2 years with various USB devices. This is the first time anything like this has happened. And it also happens with all my ports, not just the hub. The hub does have a power supply, but last time I plugged it in, it literally burnt three brand new flash drives, so I haven't plugged it in since.

Is SP3 on it?

yes. Latest updates etc. Like I said, I think it's something to do with the flash drive because when I plug it into my laptop it still shows once ejected as well.

Eject it, go to device manager, delete all the entries under USB controllers. Then reboot, then see if it works properly

will that remove my drivers for my wireless mouse/keyboard and graphics pad?

Ok. so now it's only doing it with the one USB drive, and it does it on all the computers I plug it into?
