Kindle Eject

I was trying to get my Kindle to charge on my Windows 7 machine today, and noticed some funny behavior. When you plug your Kindle into a W7 machine, it mounts as an external drive so you can drag and drop files to it. The screen says that to have it charging, you need to "eject" it. This does not mean to go to the USB logo in your taskbar and click on "Safely Remove Hardware"!! It actually means go to the drive in Windows Explorer, right click on it, and hit "Eject"!
