USB drives wont eject.

Everytime I attempt to eject any of my USB drives, I get the following error. They are closed, and I can't see what programs can be using them.

Anyone with some wisdom, please??

This is really frustrating me. I just left the USB stick in for about an hour (closed) and I can still not eject it. Still get the same error!!!!

It ejects with no problem when I right click on it, and then clicking eject, when in 'my computer', but it wont eject when clicking on the 'safely remove' icon in the taskbar. This is really weird!!

No it didn't come with any drivers, and yes it happens on the 64bit side. Any solutions to this?
Thanks for your input!
