Why is it every time I plug it into my system and try to eighter eject using U3 software that came with it or go to safely remove hardware it says, can't do still accessing it or open program try later. Then when I go to other systems it ejects fine. Ran check disk on it and all is good. Anyone have anything?

This happens a lot on some of my XP computers. Sometimes if i do another task like open a picture or a text file, i can then stop the USB. Other times nothing seems to stop it, so i will turn off the computer, or reboot and while the computer is in between the boot i will pull the USB flash drive out as it is not being accessed right after the computer shuts down.

I think what XP does is keep the files used off the USB drive in the memory instead of releasing it. So it thinks the flash drive is still in use. I have not had this problem in Vista yet.
