The MediaMonitor code indicates that it should try to unmount the disk
if it is already mounted.  More is available through the Doxygen


Keep in mind that the function only works if the drives are known to
the MediaMonitor (i.e. they must be defined in Setup -> General ->
Page 4).

If the MediaMonitor is configured properly and still can't unmount the
drive, it might not have permission.  Only the user that mounted the
drive (or root) can unmount it.
