its a HARDWARE issue i think , so i post it in here
i got a simple question, here it is.



when im Ejecting the External HDD ( HP pd500a) in windows 7 (laptop), i can feel the device (the extenal hDD) that it still rotating or spinning inside, and the LED light is on steady,

when on XP (desktop) it stop rotating and the LED is goin on and off for about 2 to 3 seconds,

i try it to Windows 8 also, same Laptop, it Stop spinning and the LED is blink on and off (like in windows XP)

"Eject Properly in said OS"

i got a desktop and a laptop
Destop is winXP
Laptop is win7 (then i just format it to win8)

i think its BOTH safe, But i want the way XP eject my External HDD ,

can windows 7 or 8 adopt this ? or have this ? how can i enable it or somethin like that ?

Thanks and Happy Computing :D

That was changed in Windows 7 and Vista, I think. When I started using Windows 7, I've noticed the same activity on USB external drives but since using safely remove hardware option and literally removing the device, it's a step I have practice eversince. See here though http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2401954

Global Setting

To apply the workaround globally for all enumerated USB devices, add a REG_DWORD value named DisableOnSoftRemove that has a value of 1 to the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\usbhub\HubG
Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK .
Locate and then click the following subkey in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\usbhub
On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click Key.
Type HubG for the name of the new key, and then press ENTER.
On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD (32-bit) Value.
Type DisableOnSoftRemove for the name of the DWORD Value, and then press ENTER.
Right-click DisableOnSoftRemove, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 1 , and then click OK.
Exit Registry Editor.

i got already a HubG folder and it has a EnableDiagnosticMode set to 0.

still got a activity
