Disconnect the HP TouchPad the Correct Way

Here's the right way to disconnect your HP Touchpad.

BYTE -- Windows users are used to just pulling out USB devices without getting errors. But if you pull the USB cable from your HP TouchPad, WebOS doesn't like it. You get the following message.


The correct way to disconnect your HP TouchPad is to go to My Computer, right-click on the HP TouchPad icon, then select Eject from the context menu.


Then disconnect the USB cable once you see the Safe To Remove Hardware message pop up in the Notification Area on the Taskbar.


Disconnecting your new tablet properly is important. This way, don't corrupt files or the OS.
