Default ejecting problem

i have problems ejecting X-Fi2....each time i try i get the message that its in use or its being used by some other programme, but i have nothing running or anything using the X-Fi2....this happens on 2 different computers, my home machine running Vista and my work machine running XP pro...up till now nothing has happened when i unplug the X-Fi2 but i guess i'm pushing my luck and eventually i will have problems from not being able to eject the player
thanks in advance for your help

When this happens, is Windows Media Player open? If it's running it will load the player even when you didn't ask it to do so, and can/will produce the "device is in use" message until you close the media player.

TBH I never eject safely, I just unplug it when it's done transferring files. Seems safe enough to me but I'm no expert on this..
this is a link to my personal homepage which I haven't

I suggest downloading this program:

Once you run it with your Zen plugged, select your zen with the program and click locks. What programs are locking it?

I've never used the eject thing.. and I've never lost any data due to ignoring the 'feature'
