For OS X, first do this:
And then extract the list of disks (/dev/disk0, /dev/disk1, etc.).
Then, for each disk, do:
diskutil info <disk>
and then parse for "Protocol: USB" and "Ejectable: Yes". Then you have
a list of mounted USB drives. Then to unmount a drive, execute:
disutil unmountdisk <disk>
I'm not sure how to do it on Windows...
