Flash disk safely remove...

by johanviss / September 8, 2007 5:54 PM PDT


I`ve got a little prob, whenever I plug a flashdisk into my pc the safely remove icon doesn`t show in the task bar... If i just plug the flashdisk out, it doesn`t want to work on another pc but if I plug it back in my pc it works. Is there a manual way to safely remove?

It flushed the pending writes.

I didn't write that you have to set the USB items to show in the tray since I took your writings to have done that and were looking for the other way.
