I hooked up my new 3T my book for mac to my MBAir which read the drive well with no problems.
However, after I did a full ejections of the few partitions of the drive, and the few partitions then disappeared from the computer screen, and turned off the power, I thought the ejection was complete. But I left the drive still hooked up to the computer , thinking it was powered off.
Hours later, my computer screen showed the warning that the drive was not properly ejected and the power was on!
What should I do to eject the drive correctly, disconnect the drive from the computer without unhooking it from the computer and removing the ac power plug?
I have a different maxtor external hard drive and it is ok once I eject the drive, turn off the ac power switch but leaving it connected to the computer. No further warning that the drive is improperly ejected.
Please help and thanks.
