Hi espie32,

The USB Mass Storage Device are in use by another program or may be any files are open handles hence this problem is occurred.

Follow this steps to solve this Problem -:

2. Click Find, Find Handle or DLL in the Tool Menu.

3. Type the Drive Letter of the USB Storage Device in the Handle or DLL substring textbox, and Click on Search Button.
4. Find the process and its PID in the following box.
5. In system process tree view, find the process according to the Find Handle or DLL dialog box.
6. Press Ctrl + H to show Handles in Lower Pane View.
7. Find the File according with the drive letter , and right click it, choose Close Handle.

May be it will help you.....

I assume this would work, but I can't be sure because to close the handle I need to have admin privileges, which I don't.
