I can't remove my portable hard drive.

Today, when I right click the hard drive and elect the "unmounted safely", the portable hard drive is unmounted for a moment and then automatically mounted again. No matter how many times I try, it just the same result.

I don't come across the problem in my another computer (ubuntu12.04.2).

ejecting the drive also attributes to the same result. It's not useful,but I don't know why. –  user184651 Sep 2 '13 at 5:30
