Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive Constantly Blinks

My 16GB Cruzer has a very small amount of data stored on it, but is constantly blinking. When I click on the safely hardware and eject media and choose to eject the Cruzer it says it is being used and to close any programs or windows that might be using it.

It has been busy for over 24 hours since I added some documents to it.

Any suggestions?

Most likely your anti-virus or firewall is protecting the drive, thus it’s in use.  Try shutting each of them down, one by one, to determine which one is the hold up.

Or shut the pc down and remove the USB drive.
