It's more a bug than a question, maybe this is not the right place for this kind of topics. – skalka Nov 11 '10 at 11:31
Nautilus elementary often hangs when unmounting volume and AFAIk this is a known bug. – tinhed Nov 11 '10 at 12:10

You can also run this command from the terminal. Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

umount /path/to/usb/drive/

You can try ejecter. A small gnome panel applet which shows you mounted volumes and safely unmount it.
