You can also run this command from the terminal. Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

umount /path/to/usb/drive/

Try this way:

Right click on your USB Drive and select "Safely Remove Drive"

You can try ejecter. A small gnome panel applet which shows you mounted volumes and safely unmount it.
