As root, try the command...
fuser -v /mnt/removable
This should list all processes accessing the drive.
fuser -kiv /mnt/removable
lists all processes accessing the drive and prompts asking if you want
the process killed. If you're *REALLY* brave/stupid...
fuser -kv /mnt/removable
(without the "i") won't prompt before killing the process. Before
killing the process the first time, I suggest you get back to this list
and ask if the process is vital. I.e., can it be killed without
screwing something up?
