Since posting the previous reply, over a year ago, I've found a more satisfactory way of unmounting the S639F. It also works with the W202 and presumably various other models.

In a Terminal window, just enter

sudo umount -f /Volumes/WALKMAN

and hit Enter. Then, if you've used Caps Lock to capitalize "WALKMAN" (case is important), immediately turn it off, because you will be prompted for your password.

I'd previously tried this without the "-f" switch and got an error message saying that the device was busy and couldn't be unmounted. The "-f" seems to make all the difference.
