    As with the answer from the first responder, ANY eternal device must be removed from the desktop by putting its icon in the Trash before you disconnect it. Not doing this will start with an annoying "you didn't disconnect properly" message, but it can get worse. If your system is performing one of its periodic checks on all external devices, you can do data damage to the directory.

    In other words, just Trash it first, each time.

  • Simply place the LaCie icon that is on the desktop in the trash, wait for the icon to disappear and then disconnect the USB cable from the MBP (or other computer).
