Unplug all devices

  Adz1310 12:00 10 Apr 2007

Hey guys,
I was just wondering if anyone can help? I have a number of USB devices plug into my laptop at anyone time all through a hub. Is there such a program that stops them all working at the same time so then it is safe to unplug, or do u have to do each one at a time???
Looking forward to your responses

Have you tried safely remove hardware? This tells you how to take out the icon you ned but you can reverse it to see it. click here

Yes I know how to unplug things, was wondering if there was maybe a third party software that just did it for you rather than going through each device and stopping them all individually.

The only time I use remove hardware safely, is when removing memory stick, or card from memory reader.

All other things like wireless card etc I just tke out, when finished using them.

I have removed memory cards from reader in past , without safely remove control,

Can't say ever had any problem, providing PC is not accessing it at the time.

But I have found with time esp with the hard drives, things like autoplay stop working etc!
