How can I launch "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media"?

Hi,

I very much know about using C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll to display the "Safely Remove Hardware" dialog window, but I'd much prefer to emulate the result of clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" icon in the system tray.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

When you have media hardware connected through USB there should be an icon showing down on the right side. Sometimes it doesn't show but you can then click the arrow which will make hidden icons show.

I wasn't all that clear in my original post, but what I'm wondering is that if it is also possible to use the command line.

I'm trying to find out if there is a command-line version of the icon that is in the system tray.
