Question unmounting usb camera

Ok i finally got my usb camera installed and all configured. When i go to upload the pictures to my computer everything works fine then i close the window and unmount the device but i get the error "Could not unmount device. The reported error was :unmount: /home/Matt/FuijFilm: device is busy"... so i turned off my camera tried then and same error and then i tried to unplug it and same error??? Anyone know why this is happening and how i can fix it because inorder to uploat more pictures i need to restart....I believe... Thanx

are you sure you are closing all window for the camera? i believe there is still an active window or your shell still in the /home/Matt/FuijFilm directory.....

Mine sometimes does the same thing and it always unmounts if I use issue the command with the -l switch:

umount -l /mnt/camera
-who just noticed that this question was almost a year old... oops
