No bugs (as of yet)

If you are looking for a better looking gadget, then you can check out Q' Drive Info gadget.
Windows Live Gallery

It shows all the drives (HDD, Removable, Flash, CD, DVD.....) with information for all drives and eject button for all removable drives. Very useful if you have multiple drives.

EDIT: Just realized that the gadget doesn't show empty drives.

I've made a gadget to do it. This gadget lists all the CD drives and individual drives can be ejected.
Clicking on the CD drive image will eject all the drives.
