Kindle doesn't disconnect/eject from PC??

Hi,

Just got my Kindle 3 today and well pleased so far

But I have run across one problem and that is when I plug it into my PC it comes up with the message that if I want to read while the USB is plugged in then I should eject it from my PC.

So I go to eject it and windows 7 says it has ejected but I still have the message on the Kindle, nothing happens?

Only way that seems to work is the Kindle Collection Manager lol

EDIT: Also could some one explain this locations thing that is used instead of page numbers? I have come from a PRS505 which displayed page numbers but I am completely lost with this locations thing as it doesn't seem to go up by one or anything, help!!!

Thanks.

You might try this on the eject issue:

Locations are a bit non-intuitive to me also, I look at the percentage instead and hope for a better solution in the future

Right Click on your Kindle in My Computer, and click Eject.
