error: "the disk is in use and could not be ejected"
Authored by: kaz219 on Jan 29, '07 01:26:35AM

Same here: "The Disk xxxx is in use and could not be ejected. Try quitting applications and try again."

The bad part is that it stay like this after. I can't eject the disk anymore, even with command-E, even using the menu. The only solution is to reboot. It has nothing to do with any application, it just happens with any disk, when I try to unmount it using the Quicksilver trigger.

I used the com.appzapper.appzapper file instead. Works great for files, though.

Sorry to hear that. What operating system are you on? Let me know and I'll see what I can do. (Haven't tested the script on anything other than 10.4.8.)
