Problem Ejecting USB Mass Storage Device

I'm having problems ejecting my USB external hard drive. I store my music on the drive and would like to have Windows Media Player readily have access to that library. Thus, when I added a folder on the drive to the Music Library on my computer, I can no longer safely remove the hard drive. Are there any fixes for this issue since it is highly inconvenient to have Windows Media Player rescan my drive to reestablish my library? I am currently running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit if that's at all relevant.

Thanks!
