Safely remove stuck on taskbar

Hi all,

My daughters Dell D630 laptop with Vista Home Premium has the Safely Remove Hardware icon permanantly on the taskbar, when I click on it it tells me I can safely remove the DVD RW drive.

Have read about this happening sometimes with SATA hard drives, but the DVD drive is ATA.

So any ideas/help appreciated.

Regards.

According to the Service Manual ClickHere that is correct, you have to 'Safely remove Device' before taking the Optical Drive out of the Media Bay.

Hi Lotvic,

Well i'll be, never heard of that before, must remember, If all else fails read the manual.

Cheers Lotvic ;0))
