    I have two Acomdata USB hard drives that I cannot "Safely Remove" from
    Vista. I am NOT having the "Can't stop because it's in use" problem.
    The problem is that they appear as "Hard Disk Drives" instead of
    "Devices with Removable Storage", so they are not one of the "Safely
    Remove Hardware" choices. In XP, they both appeared in the "Safely
    Remove Hardware" menu but in Vista, they don't. I have tested plugging
    in a flash drive, and that does appear in "Safely Remove Hardware" but
    the hard drives don't. Please help!!
