MMC command line eject?

I have an MMC card reader (Kingston FCR-U26/1 to be exact) and I seem to have to right-click on the drive letter in the explorer window and select 'Eject' before I remove the MMC card.

This is sort of a pain, but it's even more of a pain because most of the copying to/from the card I do from the command line.

So, I'm looking for a way to 'eject' from the command line, so I don't have to open an explorer window.

Any suggestions?

I do a similar type of thing, but its using a CDROM.
As your MMC uses a drive letter it may be worth trying out.


Extract the files from the zip and copy the eject.exe file to your windows (or winnt) directory.  Then in your command line you can simply type "Eject D:"  hopefully this will work with your card reader.

Good luck..... Joe.

hmm, I didn't think that would work, but it looks like it did.
