Disconnecting adsl when removing my mp3 player

If i remove anything from the computer (via the bottom right of the screen where the time is, and "unplug hardware safely") whilst my adsl is connected (say i am disconnecting my mp3 player) then the adsl disconnects also. even though i never click on the adsl, it always disconnects. I have a Belkin speedtouch adsl modem with windows xp home.

any ideas as to how to stop this as its very annoying!

thanks

furthermore, whenever i disconnect the mp3 player it always says the device cannot be disconnected right now and to try again later. every time!

i have to just pull out the cable in the end....

Is the MP3 Player & ADSL both plugged into a USB hub?
