How Do I Safely Remove Hardware


First off, some of those icons will never be removed, as they are necessary to be there for verification purposes. Safely Remove Hardware is one of them. Any time you plug in a device such as a flash card or external hard drive, devices that read and write data, they show up in this block. Since Windows does delayed writes to save time,l if you simply unplug these devices without letting Windows close out the write cache may cause corrupted files. Right clicking on the Safely Remove Hardware icon will cause a listing of attached devices to be displayed. Clicking on the device you want to remove (unplug) will tell Windows to close out the file cache and dismount the device. Windows will do this and them notify you that the device is safe to remove.

Now, regarding all those other icons that appear,such as OneDrive, volume control, and others, if you don't want them showing up in the taskbar, you can right click on the "^" caret symbol that expands the taskbar, then choose SETTINGS. This will bring up the taskbar settings menu. Scroll down the page to where is says "Select which icons appear on the taskbar" and select that. You will see a long list of possible taskbar icons. Turn off the ones you don't want to see display on the taskbar. This does not remove them from the system, but they will no longer display on the taskbar,

Attach your external HD with some other computer, that will definitely appear normal, the problem is due to a virus in ur HD. Your computer's antivirus software stops it to appear. Back up your data on the other computer, format ur external HD, remove un-necessary files and run a virus scan to the files u copied from HD, Hope this will solve the problem, if not, let me know and tell me what would be the response on the other compuer

When i plug the flash drive into my computer, it does not show up under my computer, but the safely remove hardware icon shows up on my taskbar.


Hi,
Try downloading the U3 driver, if you haven't already.
First plugin the sandisk to your usb port, and then check from Windows Explorer, does your sandisk cruzer detected? you'll get a new drive letter besides your local drive or named "removable disk".
If you do see it then just do format (you'll lose the U3), copy, store, overwrite it again and again as you like.
If you still need the U3 application, pls read this:
http://www.u3.com/support/default.aspx#CQ1

You possibly haven't installed the driver properly.
If a wizard that comes up as soon as you plug the device in, Just let it detect the device and then go to Control Panel, and System, and Device Manager, and double click on the device driver, or if it isn't there, double click on the unknown device with the yellow exclamation mark and hit the Driver tab, Install Driver, and choose the 'Let me choose the driver' option, and navigate to where you unzipped that driver you downloaded to, and click on the driver, wait for it to finish installing and reboot.

Let me know how you get on..
Good Luck!

Install flash drive


What type of operating system you are using? If it is a Windows XP's or vista it is a "Plug and Play" i.e automatically detects the type of device that's been attached and, if needed, automatically installs the appropriate drivers for it.
Windows "Plug and Play" plays very well with USB. Chances are installing your USB flash drive means simply plugging it in, and letting Windows do the rest. (It may ask you for your Windows installation CD to get drivers.) When done, you should find another drive letter on your machine that is the USB drive.
To be clear, you should definitely review any documentation that came with your USB device.
While flash drives and other "disk-like" devices tend to just work, manufacturers of other devices often have you install their software on your system before plugging the device in for the first time.
So just check the materials that came with your new peripheral.

Your taskbar should notified you that new hardware installed ". Click on that, select the device you wish to remove, and Windows will do things like flush the disk buffers and ensure that from the operating systems point of view it's safe to unplug it.

Phillips Go Gear 6GB


The Phillips website has a solution for this:
Go to the FAQ for this mp3 player. It'll tell you to install the Device Manger which will repair the problem. I've done this, however, the Device Manager claims my mp3 Player is not connected.

Try this yourself, you might have better luck.
