What do you mean "just eject"? Do you think this article does not explain eject, or you're just lazy to look through all of it? Just asking...

You can download the source and get any function, and if it is not there, you can create with help of that code.

I agree with Prerak. OP, please look at the name of the article -- the code is there.

Hi, I have to also agree with Prerak, this is not a simple task and there is no single function you can call to safely remove a USB disk. I recently wrote some software to allow users to format or delete files from a memory stick and searched high and low for how to do this and found the code in the article you’ve read to be the only way to be able to safely remove USB disks.

I am thinking about posting an article about what I found and this could include a DLL that has such a function (ie EjectDisk(driveLetter)) for those not wanting to dig into the lower level stuff, if you are interested?
