Dad Gift Card


I’m trying to eject a storage card on my Mac, but the computer tells me I can’t because the card is in use. But its not in use! There are absolutely no files or programs open.

This is common when people start using any type of removable media, such as Syquest drives or PCMCIA cards. If File Sharing is on, then any drive which was in the computer when it started up can not be dismounted. Temporarily turn off File Sharing by using either the Control Strip module which looks like a folder or the Control Panel named Sharing Setup. After removing the card, you can turn File Sharing back on.
