My "Remove Hardware" icon is missing from my task bar

I don't ever get the remove hardware icon. Usually I can "eject" the device under "My Computer" but I'd like the taskbar icon back

This is probably because your device is set up for 'Optimize for fast removal'.meaning that is not necessary to stop the device

In any case, if you would still like get the icon back to your task bar
just follow the steps listed on this website:

I have finished downloading songs from computor to ipod; Ipod reads eject before disconnecting

What Windows OS are you using? From Windows 7 and older versions of Windows, there will be a "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom right corner next to the time. Click on this and choose the IPod. Alternatively, double-click on the Computer (My Computer) icon and choose the IPod under Devices with Removable Storage. Right click on the IPod's icon and choose Eject or left click on the icon and click Eject in the Menu bar of the window.

In Windows 8, you will find these same icons on the desktop screen. There may be a similar option on the Start Screen; however, I'm not positive where that would be.

If you fail to use the Eject feature and remove the device's USB connection to the computer, you risk corrupting the data on the IPod's drive. The computer could still be writing data to the device.

I hope this helps.

I guess you're trying to eject the Kindle from the task bar "(safely remove hardware". Try going into Start/Computer/right click on Kindle/ select eject. This worked for me when I had the same problem.

Why cant i use my kindle when pluged into my computer, am i thick

When you connect your Kindle to a PC, it automatically goes to USB mode, allowing access to its internal memory from the PC. The Kindle cannot display a book for reading at the same time. It would require quite complicated handling, for example, to display a book while the book is deleted by the PC concurrently. Allowing only one machine access to the internal memory at a time avoids any concurrency issues.

If you want to read books while continue charging, on the PC:
  • Windows XP, Windows Vista: find the "Safely Remove Hardware" button in the status bar (right side of the task bar), and select "Eject" for the Kindle device.
  • Windows 7: Open "My Computer", press the right mouse button on the drive icon representing your Kindle's internal memory and select "Eject".

How do you use usb sticks?

1. Plug thumb drive or USB into the USB port on the laptop.
2. Go to My computer and see if you see "Removable Disk" if yes then you double click here and you will see the contents of the USB drive.
3. load something from the laptop or PC to the usb just drag document or program from PC drive to usb drive.
4.Go to site called "Ehow" to gain more information.
Note of caution donot just pull USB from the usb port it will erase all the information and the USB drive will then be rendered usless.
5. Remove USB in the proper manner that is goto the "task bar and look for the "safe to remove hardware" icon or go to the "my computer" icon select the "removable disk" icon ( right click) and the select "eject" if the drive is busy or a message comes up that it is then closed all programs associated to it and the "Eject" the drive and remove it from the USB port.
I hope this helps. Have a good day!

First of all it is not that necessary to click the Unplug Eject Icon for removing the Hard Disk. Default with Windows XP Opearating System there is a option for removing the USB External Devices without clicking the Unplug Icon. So no need to worry.

What is the proper way to disconnect the camera from the computer?

Depending on the operating system that you work with, there is a proper way to disconnect your camera from your computer to ensure smooth operation. With Windows 98, you can simply turn your camera off and unplug it. Make sure you are not in the middle of downloading when you disconnect your camera, or you might loose some or all of your pictures. In Windows ME and Windows 2000, you must go to the system tray (on your task bar usually located on the bottom of your screen) and look for the "unplug/eject hardware" icon. Click this "unplug/eject hardware" icon once to pop up a list of devices available for disconnection, then click on your camera's drive. When the computer tells you it is safe to disconnect your device, then simply turn your camera off and unplug it. Windows XP also has an "unplug/eject hardware" system tray icon, which you should use. However, if you are not in the middle of downloading your pictures, it is generally safe to simply turn your camera off and unplug it. On a MacOS computer, you should drag the camera's disk icon to the trash can before turning off or unplugging it.
