Keep clicking stop until it stops. It can take 5 or 6 attempts sometimes. If that fails and you dont want to yank the cable out, shut the pc down then when its off switch the drive off then remove it.

I would recommend not using a USB drive anyway since they are prone to corrupting their partition tables as someone I know did last night and its something Ive done in the future.

o_O

damn, i wish i knew when i would be ruining a HDD ahead of time, that would make data restoration hella easier.

i use a usb-IDE connector that supports mini, 3.5 and SATA HDD and it has tons of trouble detecting the HDD if the jumpers arent set right, but once it's setup properly using it is a snap, with no data loss. i don't even have to "stop" it, it's truly plug-n-play, but perhaps this is a feature of win2k3sp1r2 and not the usb-IDE BIOS?

Id think the OS would have something to do with it yes. It happened to me on XP, which doesnt seem to like it.
