maybe you have something else that is usb plugged in, like a modem, for example. open it up and see what is in the list. if you remove everything in the list, then it will go away.

I would think so. Our HP printer haas a card reader that windows detects as a "removable" device.

BTW, for those of you who thinbk you can just unplug file systems without "stopping" them, I would think again. Apparently windows caches data to be transferred sometimes, which could end up as bad news for everyone.
