I want to use ResetTimeout but I am unclear about a few points (using online help as reference)
https://www.eldos.com/documentation/cbfs/ref_cl_cbfs_mtd_resettimeout.html

1) What is the unit of the parameter Timeout? It specifies 30 seconds in a later paragraph but in practice it does not seem to be seconds.
2) The advise of setting it to zero can be dangerous if you end up debugging and not continuing execution, in this case the drive appears to be orphaned and the system never shuts down.
3) The advise at the bottom is contradictory, "may be called only from callback / event handlers" and "may be called only from outside of callback / event handlers", i assume it is the first of these
4) The "see also" section refers to UnResetTimeout which is not referenced anywhere else.

Thanks, Paul.
