That means, windows auto-mount it for you. In Windows XP, your drive will automatically open. Now your USB drive is just like other normal drive partition. You can save and obtain data from it as normal.</p> <h3>Unmount USB drive</h3> <p>You can't just pull off the USB drive from the port without unmount it first. You might lost your data if you don't unmount it properly.</p> <p>This is an example on how to unmount a USB drive (thumb drive) in windows:</p> <p>Check there are many icons at the bottom right on the desktop.</p> <p><img src="/files/images/winbasic/usbicon.jpg" alt="USB icon" /></p> <p>Click on the USB icon.</p> <p><img src="/files/images/winbasic/usbicon2.JPG" alt="Click USB icon" /></p> <p>Click on the 'Safely remove USB Mass Storage Device - Drive(?)' to unmount the drive.</p> <p><img src="/files/images/winbasic/usbicon3.jpg" alt="Remove USB" /></p> <p>You can safely remove the USB drive when you see this notification from windows:</p> <p><img src="/files/images/winbasic/usbicon4.jpg" alt="Successful removed USB drive" /></p> <p>Sometimes you'll get a message that windows cannot unmount usb drive because it is being used by another program or something like that. There are several reasons that can caused the problem. First, check that all programs or applications running from the usb drive is closed. Then try to unmount the usb drive again. If you still got the 'device busy' message, most probably your usb drive has been infected by viruses. Scan usb drive and clean/quarantine all viruses then try unmount the usb drive again.</p> <p>That's all.</p> </div></div></div><!-- google_ad_section_end --><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" rel="dc:subject"><a href="/taxonomy/term/25" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">windows tutorial</a></div></div></div> Wed, 13 Aug 2008 07:24:16 +0000 jinlusuh 272 at http://basicconfig.com http://basicconfig.com/windows/unmnt#comments How to import address book in Outlook Express http://basicconfig.com/windows/import <!-- google_ad_section_start --><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p>If you want to import your internet email address book, you can send your address book as an email attachment to your office email address.</p> <p>This is an example on how to import address book using outlook express.</p> <p>1.
