    Well, actually, it's not. Any way to find out who or what the system
    thinks is using it?

    Well yes it is :) Just start quitting applications that might have
    opened a file on that disk.

    such as What's Keeping Me.

    I have the same problem with some external disks - both USB and
    FW400/800... When I click 'Eject "xxxx"' in the contextual menu the
    disk(s) disappear from the desktop, but the message above occors many
    times but not always. - It happens both with OS X 10.5.8 and 10.6.8.

    I don't know why, but my guess is - here - that it might be caused by
    ClamXAV's ApplicationSentry which always is running on my machines.

    Cheers, Erik Richard
