  1. I have XP pro and a Lexar 1gr jump drive secure. I acidently removed it once without dismounting and not it will not dismount at all. I get an error message telling me to close all programs running on the drive even though there are none open. Any help on fixing this problem.

    Thanks

    Reformatting it may help, it sorted my mp3 player when that happened.


    Hope that helps. Rik.

    Check out www.lexar.com, they may well have a recovery program or instructions on how to recover the device.

    Hope that helps. Rik.

    Thanks for the continual help, I contacted Lexar many times and they keep telling me that it is a problem with the computer since I do not have this problem on any other computer. But I just can not believe that I am the only one in the world who accidently took the drive out without dismounting it. I need to figure out how to get XP to learn how to dismount this drive again correctly.

    Again Thanks for your help.
