I am using a PC with Windows XP and a laptop with Windows 7.
Under Windows 7, I can simply physically remove any USB stick. Files are written directly, when this is finished I just pull out the USB stick.
Under Windows XP, I have to "Safely Remove Hardware" and go through a complicated procedure where it's easy to make errors.
Can I set Windows XP so that it behaves like Windows 7 with respect to removal of USB sticks? I.e. I do not want to go through the annoying "Safely Remove Hardware" procedure under Win XP,. I rather would like the files to be written directly and then just pull out the USB stick? Is this possible?
