Stop hardware device from command line

Hello,

I want to stop and start a hardware driver from the command line, in a AT job.

The hardware device is "USBSTOR", which is a small USB card reader.

The reason why is that, when I leave the office at night, I often forget to unplug it, and it takes 4 drive letters on my computer.  Because of this, another AT job (which compacts access databases automatically, updates them and copy them on the network) won't run properly because of a lack of drive letter to connect a network share to.

Thanks
