Quite a pity. I modified your fdi-file and now the hdd shows up as requires_eject = true,
but when I try to use exo-eject on it, it still gives me the error. I still attached it,
just in case.

Actually this time I could see a notification (of notify-send obviously) popping up for a
split-second saying that there is data that has to be written on the device... (whatever
that means in this context) In the end there was the generic error message again.
