See if disabling your AV allows you to eject. If it still fails see this post. Process Explorer may give you a clue.

Also, all USB drives are "hot swappable." Provided you aren't actively writing data to the drive at the moment (and you'd know if you were) you do not really need to eject them. You really can safely just "pull the plug."

Thanks for the replies. That's what I've been doing - simply unplugging the drive. After invesigating with Process Explorer and Process Monitor, I thought I had the problem traced down to a program called OpenHardwareMonitor that provided data to NZXT Kraken Control, however it seems that, after disabling it and restarting, the problem persists, despite being solved when the process was simply killed. Odd thing is that it does not do this with USB 2.0 drives, only with USB 3.0 drives, even when the 2.0 drive is plugged into the same 3.0 port. Perhaps the most interesting answer came from the free unlocker program I downloaded. Apparently, there is nothing using the drive, despite the message I ger when trying to eject it.
