hi ppl
i just got a SanDisk Cruzer Titanium 4gb

when i use it, it's all good
but i don't have the "safe remove" option from my XP system
i have to open the U3 (didn't remove it yet) and do an eject

is there any bat or prog that can do "safe unplug"?
so i can add it to the PStart menu

I am using Sync from SysInternals. It's a tiny console EXE.

well, idk if your keeping U3 or not,
but, if i remember from the short time i had it, ;)
as long as U3 is on it, youll have to use it to do an eject because of the install/trickery stuff it does to get it to 'auto-run'

other then removing U3 or doing what Andy says there,
i dont know of a way to safe eject it,

Very old thread update:

After guinness started working on ProEject, I seemed to see a whole bunch of other ejection tools. Obviously his program has quite a few benefits including being open source and based on the popular EjectUSB:

... but here's some others:

DevEject

USB Disk Eject (mentioned on the site quite a while ago)

DriveTools - a command-line program with a variety of functions, including safe eject

Old topic update: in case of trouble while attempting to safely remove USB devices, I wanted to document Windows default way.

The best explanation/hack I found in this blog post:

    You can copy and paste the following command into the run box to initiate the "Safely Remove Hardware" prompt:
    Code:
    %windir%\System32\RUNDLL32.EXE shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll

    To make myself stop my USB devices prior to removing them, I've taken this command to the next level, and integrated it into a simple batch file.

    To do the same, copy and paste the following text into notepad, and save it as "Your File Name Here.bat":
    Code:
    START %windir%\System32\RUNDLL32.EXE shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll

The remainder of the post explains how to integrate this with Pstart, for example...

safely%20remove%20usb
