Unable to unmount usb drive due to unknown processes?

If you are unable to unmount the disk using the GUI in GNOME or KDE, just open up a terminal and run sudo fuser -k /media/usbdrive. Change /media/usbdrive to where your USB drive is mounted.
This command kills all processing accessing your usb drive and then a simple eject command from your GNOME or KDE explorer will do the trick
