2. Deactivate/remove any fonts loaded to Suitcase directly from your media.
3. Now try to eject the drive.

Question:  My computer has a spinning wheel. How do I unfreeze it?

Answer - If you are connected to a network volume, the computer may have dropped or lost its connection with the server. Try re-launching the finder by clicking on Apple>Force Quit, Select Finder and click Relaunch (Or press the option + command and Esc at the same time).  You may have to do this several times before your computer responds. Once it does, eject the nework volumes if you are not using them. If the problem persists, contact the tech.

Answer - Check the Ethernet cable at the back of the computer and make sure it is connected.
