    Until somebody responds with a quick way, the safe (but slow) way is to shut your tablet down, disconnect the drive, then restart the tablet.

    I really find it hard to believe that after almost a month this still has no answer. Is there no command line mode? no app or script? is it a problem with all android 2.1 tablets?

    Really, no one knows this already??

    The answer is simple. With the device plugged into a computer turn on the screen (unlock if you have to) and then slide your finger down from the top of the screen. The notifications tray will slide down to reveal USB options. Depending on which storage device you have mounted for use with your computer you should see an option to "mount" the drive or "unmount" the drive (if it's already mounted). Once you select this option the device will unmount the storage device from the connected machine and prepare it for use with the Coby Tablet. When all is done, the device can be safely unplugged.

    It should work the same way with external storage devices; in fact I know it does as I disconnect my flash drives this way.

    Bkenney: I think you misunderstand the question. They've mounted flash drives on their tablets. The device doesn't really provide an auto unmount option for them.

    Ok, I've installed a terminal emulator and the device is rooted (at least I installed z4root and selected the permanent root, did I miss something there?) , I plug the pendrive in and the mount command confirms it's there, in /scsi, so i do a "su umount /scsi" and it doesn't respond (sing of success according to man) but doing mount again shows it's still there, and if I unplug it it still gives me the "USB storage unexpectedly removed"
    Please help?

    did that too, first time z4root asked if I wanted to give permission, and i did. That makes /scsi go away from the list mount gives, but still when I unplug the pendrive it says it was removed unexpectedly. (sorry I didn't write that in the post before, but I tried that one after going to bed, and my wifi was already off for the night)

    When I plug it it gives me mounting messages, but they disappear from the notifications list and I have nothing left to click. Maybe something extra you installed?

    I'm using a card reader. Same issue as others I connect it and get the messages on the status bar of connecting USB external storage. The card reader mounts on scsi and I can copy across the photos I want. But unmounting is not so easy.
    With a simple Gscript I have "umount /scsi" I can unmount the card reader. Checking with AndExplorer scsi is empty now.
    But when I unplug the the card reader I still get the ring tone and warning that the storage device was disconnected expectantly.
    I'm still googling for an answer.

    absurd,
    Can you see the /scsi folder with linda? That's where the drive should be IF it's FAT32. There is no auto mount for ntfs, ext3, ext4 etc.
    For root I used
    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/coby-tablets/5353-coby-kyros-ships-rooted.html
    especially post #6 and post #9
    The Coby already is "rooted" and with the SuperUser app you can then use backup and restore following the sticky but skipping z4root and gapps Market.

    If downloaded a bunch of movies to a flash drive, would I be able to view the movies from the flash drive? I have been hesitant to connect a flash drive as I don't want to freeze up my Kyros or mess it up in any way.

    I have been watching movies with my flashdrive, so far so good. Depending what I'm doing I use umount before removing the usb, or I turn the table off. What I try not to do is delete stuff from the pendrive.

    I was wondering the same thing as you. For me I get "preparing sd card" pop up in the notification area and then there is nothing in the notification area like you get for mounting externally etc.

    I've rooted my device, so when I run "terminal emulator" I tried the following:
    su
    umount /scsi

    but I always get failed. I even listed my mounts and tried:
    umount /dev/block//void/8:1
    But that fails too.

    Commands like "umount /dev/block//void/8:1 /scsi" and "umount /scsi -f" are rejected. This might be Terminals Emulator's support of the command maybe.

    I would have thought though, if your script does remove it from AndExplorer then it won't be accessible from the system (which means you won't get damage on removal, it just hasn't informed the system). If you list your mounts ("mount" on its own) has it been removed? If so, you should have no problem for removal.

    I'll try gscript perhaps.
