When I remove my memory cards from the USB device, the computer shuts down in an orderly manner, as if I'd selected Shut Down from the start menu! It does not happen every time, but it is a pissoff when I'm working on something to have the computer shut itself down just because I removed a device. Also, it doesn't happen every single time.

I've looked around for answers on this and haven't gotten anything other than a mention to update my usb drivers, but i cant seem to find an individual usb driver package at all.

What can I do about this? It's too much.

Are you doing the safe removal sequence before you remove the USB device?

No, the safe removal sequence isn't necessary with PC since it's only on mac that the stick is in continuous interaction with the computer -- on a pc it's inactive when not being used.

I've never used the safe removal sequence, and this is the first time in ten years this problem has happened, so it's something else.

Not my experience, but to each his own. I suggest you at least give it a try just to eliminate it as a possibility. There are so many variables in computer functions, seemingly unrelated factors can have unusual effects.
