||To stop the USB file system and close the USB stack.
USBSTOP is used to manually close the USB file system and close the USB stack. When run, it will display a requester
which says 'A program has requested the USB stack to terminate. Do you accept this?' with option of 'Yes' or 'No'. If you

Note: On A1-XE models, there was a manufacturing fault which affected many machines
resulting in AmigaDOS being unable to recognise when a device was disconnedted and reconnected. It is therefore recommended

to the hub instead. Using the hub, all devices then behave normally.
