RMPrepUSB update for Windows 8

I found that the Drive Eject function in RMPrepUSB did not work very well on 'some' USB Flash drives - Windows 8 seemed to remount the drive after a while - e.g. if an attempt was made by RMPrepUSB to access the drive (e.g. Test Ready) then Windows kindly mounted the Flash drive volume for me!
RMPrepUSB v2.1.719 should fix this issue.

Also, for some reason I cannot fathom, pressing Ctrl-O on my Win8.1 system seems to first simulate a Ctrl-M and then a Ctrl-O. This means that when you are running RMPrepUSB and press Ctrl-O it first runs the Ctrl-M 'Make grub4dos ISO from USB drive' command! For this reason the Ctrl-M has been removed (as Ctrl-O is more useful than Ctrl-M).
