You can run dosfsck so that it doesn't modify the volume
with the "-n" option.  Then you don't need to unmount it
to see whether there are issues.

Check also that no process is in disk sleep state: "ps|grep D"

AFAIK it's possible that this happens internally to kernel,
but I don't remember whether that was a bug or feature...
