When I try to remove a mass storage device from my Dell laptop running on XPH using the safely remove hardware method, it disconnects me from my BB connection and tries to redial again. Sometimes it will redial successfully, but a few times it will only reconnect after rebooting. It is connected via USB2 (a recent addition) but I seem to recall it did it on USB1 also.
I'm off to bed as I feel 'fluey' but will read any pointers with interest in the morning. Cheers all.
BTW, I shall look into it more later, but if you right click on the icon you can go into properties for different things. There might be a solution there? I have my daughter at home on half term...being dragged off my PC virtually!
The trick is I'm finding is to RIGHT click on the icon first, then LEFT click on the next box. Then choose which device to stop. This does not interfere with any other USB devices (BB being one of them). Perhaps this is the recommended way to go anyway, but it is a little long-winded.
I'll show this as resolved I think!
Many thanks byfordr for your help :-)
