To eject the device, it is necessary to close the running application that is using the device.

Unfortunately, Windows rarely indicates which program is using the device, so hopefully it is obvious. If not, you may want close all the applications that are open. If this still fails to clear the problem, it may be necessary to shut down Windows.
