I cannot remove my iomega eGo external hard drive

Asked by mike perkins

When I attempt to unmount my iomega eGo external hard drive the screen blanks out when I unplug the USB port. When I turn the computer back on it continues to look for the hard drive even though it has been unmounted and unplugged.

This sounds more like a bug. It would be great if you could take the time to report one. For that, just:

Press Alt and F2 – a »Run Application« window pops up.
Type »apport-bug« and click the »Run« button.
Follow the instructions and answer the questions.

The program will gather relevant information about your system to help developers fix the problem. Additionally, when you’re back in Launchpad with the bug report, you should add the info you already provided here about what happened.

Thanks. :)

Can you help with this problem?
