I'm not sure if this is a major issue, but I've never seen a system that has done this and the computer is only a couple of months old. Not sure if worth the time/effort to deal with Dell tech support so I'll try here first to see if anyone else has seen this or experienced similar issues.
No matter what device I plug in to the USB port, i.e. thumb drive, external HDD, MP3 player, etc., when I go to remove the device and use the icon on the system tray to "safely remove" the device, I click on the icon and nothing happens. No matter if I use left or right click, nothing happens. I'm used to it opening a context menu asking which device I would like to safely remove but this does nothing. However, when I shut down/restart, for a split second, on the bottom right of the screen, that context menu flashes and then disappears, like it was running in the background but couldn't work up the nerve to display it for some reason. (shy maybe?)
So far I have had no issues of lost or corrupt files as a result of not being able to "safely remove" the devices, but I'm just waiting for the day that it does. Anyone else have issues with this or know anything about why it might be happening? If not, I'll suck it up and call Dell tech support and see what country I can talk to.
Thanks in advance
