Web search finds info only on drives which get mounted. How about other non-mounted devices? E.g. web cameras, keyboards, microphones, etc. Is it completely ok just to pull them out (unplug)?
I know that the eject command can be used to eject almost any hardware component attached, but can it be used to eject USB drives?
eject - eject removable media
That is media, not devices, AFAIK it is different terms, please correct me if I'm wrong here.
Maybe power-off would be correct term to address my concern. Having realized that found via web search Turning off power to usb port. Or turn off power to entire usb subsystem, looking into it. The benefits of doing power-off before unplug are not completely clear to me, the question stands open.
