Easily dismount all USB devices?

How Easily it Crashes
well, despite the hype... I had a 17.1 gig image on a WD passport that I wanted to copy to another passport. Ran it (the copy process) through Win7 Pro on a laptop with 3g memory.... totally locked up once copy was finished. {oh, and it worked on XP and actually took about 33% less time}
