Here are some comments from other users:
“...We've been going around in circles trying to come up with a "fix" for the Zip drive "cache flushing" problem for the NT systems in our student computer labs. WinEject appears to be the perfect solution for our problem...” “Thought I would update an old version of Wineject as your new one locks the drive. Good function to keep my one year old from playing with the open/close button.”
“I think Win Eject is a excellent program. It works much better than other CD ejectors I have tried. Thanks for all your hard work.” “This week I installed WinEject, it works very well indeed. Especially the utility when windows shuts down is very useful.” “It is the only solution for NT-users with ZIP-drives to eject the disk. Further more it looks very professional and impressive...”
