    an easy way is .... when u wish 2 plug out your CF card from the card reader.
    close all windows or applications that will read data from your card reader, and wait for the light on the card reader to go off.
    den just remove the CF card from the card reader. and insert your next CF card.

    This should be how it works

    same as when we used to use the old 3.5" & 12.5" floppy disk (same logic )
    should be la

    close all applications?i tried that.but my bloody cf reader still shows red led after sometime.

    i think i'll need a card reader that can read 5 cf cards at one go.
    any such thing in the market?

    as long as the PC is not accessing the reader .. i don't think much harm will be done unless you have just completed copy files from/to the card .. wait for a while more before you remove as the WExplorer status may shows complete, but the system could still be copying the last few bits of files in the background ..

    Bro, this is how my card reader/writer looks like. The type that can plug different CF cards in and out w/o having to disconnect ur reader.

    I'm using the kingston 15 in 1 USB card reader, no issues so far. It does seem to have an issue reading lexar cards though.

    Mine blinks when its in use and is constant when not. Pulling it out is so much faster and it hasnt done any harm to my cards. But if you want to right click evrything, then plug it all back in over and over again, then sure.

    correct me if i am wrong
    Actually you can, afaik Win XP defaults all removable devices to "Safe Removal Mode" - a slower but safer way (since it is not cached unlike "Performance Mode"). Still, you are right to say that as long as the access/activity light is on, it is probably not safe to remove the device. Try another reader if yours take too long to return to non active mode, they are so cheap these days (might as get a SDHC supported multireader model while you are at it).

    btw, you can change the access mode under the Device Manager.
