    All of a sudden my SRH icon stopped working. If I put the cursor over it, it says "Safe To Remove Hardware", but it never opens up. I have a internally connected multi-card-reader that should and did show up, but now doesn't (they show up under my computer).

    When I shut down though, it does expand with a message saying their are no devices to remove!

    Any ideas?:confused:

    Same issue (or similar)

    I too am having this issue. It used to work fine, but now no matter what I plug in, if I try to use the SRH it shows no devices to remove.

    If I remove the device, I get no warnings to say "I should have stopped it, blah blah..."

    i'm having the same problem. i did some searching and found this freeware command line app:

    Drive Tools for Windows

    it's called 'RemoveDrive.' just type the following in the command window:

    removedrive e:

    replace 'e:' with the drive letter of your usb drive that won't safety remove. it works for me.
