Is it possible to eject a MOD removable disk media without administrator rights on NT4.0 Server with local MOD? Is there a remote solution too? Is it possible to disable the software control over the MOD, regarding to eject by eject button at the MO Drive?

Try UNMNT10.ZIP (search in www.shareware.com).
It is designed for that purpose, but I do not know if it works without admin rights. If not and/or for remote eject, I have only one idea at the moment: Schedule a script file that checks (every 15seconds or so) for a specific file on a public volume. If it is present it deletes that file and ejects the medium.

I give this as an comment only, since I am not sure wether it works for you or not.

Cer's suggestion is interesting, but does not properly work for my case. Thank you anyway. I get an error message when unmounting my MOD (with and without admin rights). The error is about to say "another process opened the drive exclusively". I'm sure that's the "explorer". I am using NTFS, that's more problematic.
The only case when it works is while having admin rights and unmount a MOD which was never accessed by the explorer. All other cases do not work.

Strange.
As far as I understood, the programm is designed specially for NTFS formatted removable media.
However, I never used it for that purpose, I use MNT to change the drive letter of the MO on startup.

Glad it helped you. I also solved an unsolvable problem with it.

Just a reminder: The number of point I will get depends not only on these 150 points, they also depends on the grade. If grade a "A" I get 4x150=600 points, if you grade a "D" I get only 1x150=150 points. Anyway, in all cases you get only the 150 points subtracted.
