HI there I just re-installed Windows and now in the icon bar in the lower right taskbar there is an icon for "Safely Remove Hardware" is always there and when I click it, it tells me that there is 2 usb mass storage devices that I can remove..... the only thing is that I don't have any mass storage devices installed on the computer through the USB and there is nothing but my printer hooked up with USB.

Just some info..... this is a HP computer W/ AMD Athlon XP 3000+ you can check the specs if you want on the HP site with this model # hp pavillion a330n I only upgraded the ram to 2 512's .

I think it has something to do with the card reader factory installed but I already downloaded the install for that and all the other crap that HP will not let Microsoft put on thier windows install disk so that yoiu have to buy the specific install for HP computers to get things like the onboard sound and the modem and other things to work right. I already found out that I had to get all thoes from the HP site.


Is there something I am missing ????????

The card readers are connected through the USB interface internally and I believe show up as mass storage devices regardless if you have anything in the slots or not.

Also some printers (HP) show up as storage devices.
