Try using the Safely Remove option before removing the media device. Althought the copying window may have disappeared leading you to believe the copy has finished, chances are the write has not. Using the above method you would get a message letting you know if the device is still in use.

or just unmount the drive FIRST before you remove it . This will finish the copying
