I have a number of USB devices, like memory card readers, external USB drives, digital camera, etc. \n\nSometimes there is a icon in the system tray that you are supposed to use to stop the USB device before you remove or disconnect it. The problem is that this icon isn't always there. Whynot? (Win XP Pro)\n\nSome of my USB devices are always connected, shouldn't this icon always be present in the system tray as long as there is a USB device connected? How important is it to "stop" the device using this icon before you disconnect it? What could happen if you don't stop the device before you disconnect it? Can I manually launch this icon?
