With XP it takes 2 seconds to remove a jump drive with Safely Remove Hardware
But, on my Windows 7 pro 64 bit running a 2.8ghz t9600 it takes 30 seconds.
Here is what happens:
#1: I get an hour glass for 7 seconds that goes away.
#2: Nothing happens. There is no feedback that anything is is still happening under the covers.
#3: After another 27 seconds the list of removable drives appears, and I can remove the drive.
I am resigned to just living with this, since it is not worth any effort to fix.
But, I would like to know if this is normal behavior.
If this is abnormal, perhaps my new Lenovo t500 may have some hardware problems?
