I have a Western Digital MyBook that will not eject at all. I do not get the "device in use" type error messages or anything like that. When I try to eject it, the icon ghosts out as if its trying to eject, but will then just sit there, and I can do nothing with it. It even interfeers with shutdown as my computer starts to shut down, but then sits at a grey screen. My only option after that is to manually power off the computer. Without it connected, shutdown is normal. Does anyone know what may be going on and how to troubleshoot it?

OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
