Actually, you said:

 You need the device NOT to be mounted when you do the cp.  This may mean
 you have to turn off your auto-mounter, ...

I inferred from this you felt that in some instances auto-mounting would
preclude any subsequent unmounting, failing to conceive of another
reason the radical measure of disabling automounting entirely would be
required to ensure it.

 or (better still) just log out of your Desktop Environment entirely,
 and log in as root on a text console for this operation.

Root? Première nouvelle!
