The Windows "Safely Remove Hardware and Remove Media" should be used.

At times, he's tried from the system tray USB icon, right-clicking in Explorer and selecting eject, using calibre's eject and the calibre SmartEject plugin. He got failures with all of those methods. Dancing widdershins around a blasted oak at midnight on a new moon was not tried but was rapidly approaching the top of his things to try list.

The only way he found to minimize his issues was to safely eject using any of the above methods or shutdown his computer and then leaving the Nook connected for 10-15 minutes before disconnecting the USB cable.

So far his Forma has behaved itself other than occasionally complaining about the dirty bit being set when he connects it to his computer. The ease of downloading his books from Kobo's store more than makes up for that issue in his opinion.

I've recently found that, once you register with Tolino, you can upload any PDF or ePub (from any source, DRM protected or not) to the Tolino Cloud and sync your books to your other devices. I know that Tolinos are "sparse" with features, but there are a few really nice features to the Tolino ecosystem.

You can even sideload ebooks into the Kobo APP on iOS and Android with no ill effects!
