improper ejection of 3T my book for Mac

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

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.

Gerry.

If you're leaving it connected why are you ejecting? Just want to understand your workflow.
