Can't unmount usb flash drive


Just installed Bodhi from a usb flash drive I made with Unetbootin. Everything went super great, but now that I'm all done I can't unmount the flash drive. I right click on it and choose 'unmount' or I click on the up-arrow next to it or choose 'eject media device.' Whatever I choose I get:

Error: not authorized to perform operation.

I ran sudo fdisk -l

(Not like I know what I'm doing.)

And got this:

Code:
Disk /dev/sda: 40.0 GB, 40000000000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4863 cylinders, total 78125000 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000a0dac

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *        2048    75769855    37883904   83  Linux

I'm thinking maybe this is a special case because of using the usb drive for the installation but I don't know.

I'm going to leave it in there until I know how to get it out safely.

Anybody know how to do it?

Thank you.

Whoa! The crops are saved! I just shut Bodhi down and when I brought it back up I was able to unmount the drive.
