Vista USB Safe Remove Problem

  1. I have a 250 GB trascend external storage that I use for remote daily DB backups. I need to take the device every evening when going home. Every time I use safe remove, Vista is saying that the device can be safely removed, but the LED indicator in the device is still ON. I tried it in XP SP3 and the LED indicator will turn OFF if i use safe remove. is this a bug in Vista? hofix?

    Is this LED used to tell you that it's not alright to disconnect? I have one with an LED on it, and it just means it is plugged into the computer. Taking it out after doing a safe remove will not damage it.

    It could just be that vista tells USB port to keep supplying power to it even when it has been safe removed. But that is just power, not an actual connection.
