Hi all,

I'm trying to copy some contents from an Secondary internal HD to a new external HD.
I keep getting the message: "The operation can’t be completed because the item “XXXXXXX” is in use."
I than have to Force Eject the external HD as it wont eject. Next time i try to copy again, a new filename is prompted with the same message.

I suspect that the RAM is holding those files cache'd. 
I've rebooted with the Secondary HD unplugged and then re-plugged it back in. No difference.
I've tried the Memory Clean app, Still getting the same error (on different files).

What else could i try? What could this be?

I do have 2 different types of RAM working. But surely this cant be the culprit?!
1;   4GB Kingston 667mhz DDR2 (2x 2GB)
2;  4GB Kingston(i think) 1066mhz(i think) (2x 2GB)

RAM speed at: 667MHz

Thanks for any help!
