Yeah i tried installing it but it would not play so i uninstalled crysis.
And zentimo is a program that manages usb devices to properly eject them from windows also it shuts them off when ejected like windows xp used to do

Any ideals as to any good usb safely remove programs that work good with usb 3.0 and will shut off power to device after telling it to eject

I only use the program because windows xp would actually cut power to the drives which keeps from any data loss because if its in the middle of using drive it would not let the drive eject but when i went to windows 7 it would say ok to eject no matter if it was actually done or not

Windows 7 will say that it cannot be ejected if it is being used by another program, if it is.

The lights only mean there is power to the port not that there is any activity going on, besides a flash drive has no cache. A hard drive has a cache, so it can still be writing after you have finished transferring programs. It could still be writing from the data stored in the cache.

So does the same apply to a external usb hard drive

Supposed to. I haven't had any problems. As long as you use the safely remove icon. All of my drives are in AHCI mode, meaning, among other things, they are hot swappable. I use esata mostly and just turn them off when finished. But, it should work in any case. Windows 7 is not XP. It is much more advanced.

How do you know if your drive is in ahci mode
