The only solution I can think of for fixing that is to simply unplug the device, then plug it back in. Maybe you need to reboot your computer to clear out the memory.
Also, I have devices that I plug into my USB port too, and the icon down in the taskbar doesn't do anything other than take quite a few clicks just to tell you it's ok to unplug something, when you can just unplug it from the port, or just unplug the device, and leave the wire still in the port. Either way, that icon doesn't value much of a usage.
I just tested mine again while I'm doing this, and as long as my device is working, I don't even see a need for it anyway. It told me me that it was ok to unplug my device when I clicked on my icon to unplug my device. I didn't need to click all those mouse clicks and select which item I wanted to unplug... all I do is just unplug my devices, and it's a done deal.
