If you see the USB drive icon on your desktop you can drag this icon to the "trash" on your doc. This does not delete but instead turns into "eject".

You can also control click the USB drive icon on your desktop and choose to eject. If you do not see the drive on your desktop you can double click the hard drive icon and look for the drive in the left side menu. If there, click the eject logo next to the drive name.

If you still do not see the usb icon on your desktop, make sure to click in any empty space on your desktop then choose "finder" at the top of the screen and choose preferences. Then on the general section, make sure external disks are checked

If you have any questions along the way, please let me know.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
