    Question "Stop USB Mass Storage Device" Icon has disappeared from taskbar

    Advertisement



    After installing the Desktop Manager, the icon in the taskbar that allows you to stop & safely remove the USB Mass Storage Device disappears; now the only way I can safely remove the BB is by shutting down the PC. When I uninstall the DM, everything returns to normal...does anyone else experience this & is there a fix? The PC's Hardware Manager is no help...

    I did what was outlined in the link you provided, danedel, to no avail...I think the problem is that I'm running windows2000, not XP. I'm gonna upgrade soon, so hopefully that'll take care of the problem. Thanks, guys, for the suggestions!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~all that does is make sure that nothing is being written to the device, and trys to prevent data corpution. It is almost never needed and has been ignored with little to no ill effects since put in windows. I've even unplugged mine while transfering files to an ipod as well as a usb key and both continued to work fine.
