Irfanview is one of the oldest, but still one of the best programs of its type. Does just about everything, its fast and very lightweight, and even works from the command-line.

USB Disk Ejector v1.3.0.5 Updated

billon on 8 Jun 2017
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 1 Jun 2017
  • Suggested by milentechie

USB Disk Ejector allows you to quickly and easily remove USB devices. It is useful when dealing with devices that refuse to eject, multiple devices, or if you don't want to see the "Now safe to remove this device" dialog. The program includes a variety of available advanced features including hotkeys, has available post-eject actions, and more.

Functional from the command-line.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GPL-2.0
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch USB_Disk_Eject.exe.
Similar/alternative apps: ProEject
What's new?
  • Added: /EJECTCARD command line switch - this makes it eject the card media rather than the drive itself. Combine it with other switches, eg. /REMOVELETTER G /EJECTCARD would eject an SD card in drive G.
  • Changed: The 'Bring to front/restore' hotkey now toggles between hiding/showing the program.
  • Fixed:
    • Card readers with identical drives like Kingston MobileLite G4. Previously you could only set one drive as a card reader - now if you define one as a card reader both become card readers;
    • Pressing escape to minimize didn't work when 'Minimize to tray' was disabled;
    • Memory card ejection via hotkeys. Previously ejecting via a hotkey just ejected the drive regardless of whether it was a card reader or not. Now it behaves like the rest of the program - if it is a card reader then the media is ejected rather than the drive;
    • Memory card ejection when the program is in 'Mobile mode' - this is when it copies and restarts itself, eg. when trying to eject the drive the program is running from. Card reader settings are now respected here - if it is a card reader then the media is ejected rather than the drive.

aka Muttley, try to disconnect 5 USB devices using that method and then try to disconnect the same 5 USB devices with this program. Then you'll see the difference... It's just much easier, and requires less clicks in diferent places! ;)

JCATech on 2008-09-23 20:41

I'm using this program for over 8 months without any problem.
It works great, a run an autoit script that close Pstart and other custom programs from my USB drive and then executes the USB Disk Ejector.

Pazera Free Audio Extractor v2.5 Updated

billon on 9 May 2017
  • 34MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 May 2017
  • Suggested by jack

Pazera Free Audio Extractor takes the audio from most major video files without loss of sound quality or converts them to a variety of common audio formats. The program can also behave as a simple conversion tool from one audio format to another (e.g. AAC to MP3).

Some supported formats include (audio) MP3, AAC, AC3, WMA, M4A, FLAC, OGG, WAV, ALAC, WavPack, AIFF; (video) AVI, FLV, MP4, MPG, MOV, RM, 3GP, WMV, VOB, MKV, WebM, and OGV.

Note: By default, the program will extract/convert to MP3. Select "Try extract original audio stream" to avoid re-encoding. This is faster, but may result in a format some devices can't read. Additionally, the program has a number of predefined settings (profiles) specially designed for novice users. More advanced users can easily customize audio encoding parameters with output parameters.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine

Oh, I forgot to mention that it come with installer, but it work on portable usb. Just extract IpSwitch.exe and run it. Program settings will be saved in data.ini in same location as IpSwitch.exe

@tpig:
Don't recommend outdated crap please.
Eusing's free IP Switcher refuses to work on anything better than Windows XP. So it's virtually useless.

Please would someone edit the 'Synopsis' so it is less misleading. Apparently, this software is for ' ... mobile users ... at ... office ... ' yet is only 'free for personal use'!
