Why do you feel you need to eject it? It should be hotswappable (just
disconnect the firewire or usb connector).

You can only do this if you've turned off write caching for this drive.
Otherwise you run the risk of data loss.

On the other hand, maybe the Western Digital install software does this by
default, hence the lack of a Safely Remove option? Just supposition on my
part.
