Windows 7: How to remove hardware (magicjack) safely in windows 7

How to remove hardware (magicjack) safely in windows 7

Hey,
This is my first post I wanted to know if there is a safe way to remove magicjack after using it. I just use it once a week. When it has not started there is an option in the taskbar to remove is safely but once it is started it no longer appears there. So once I am done using it i just close it and pull it out of the usb port (Is this safe)
I was searching about this on the net came across a video on youtube, this guy had 2 icons of magicjack in my computer where as I don't have any.
I am not very good at computers, Just managed to install win7 a few weeks back, after using xp for years. So please give me a detailed answer about this.

Thanks,
Chinu

Hi and welcome here!

Yes it is totally safe since this feature was built into windows to prevent flash drives or other data drives from data corruption or becoming unusable. By default the option of caching on flash drives is turned off (in the operating system not the drive). This function checks if there's any data traffic through the drive, and if there's no traffic it virtually disconnects the device from the computer, so it won't show up in eg. explorer.
If this icon doesn't appear or disappears for you, that means that windows recognises the device not as a simple data storage, but something else that doesn't need to be double checked before removing, because it won't suffer any damage of unexpected removing.

Cheers!

Hey,
Thanks for the reply.....I was cleaning up my desktop......so I deleted all the shortcut icons except a couple(my computer & recycle bin). But every time I connect magicjack it creates a new shortcut icon on the desktop which I don't want to have. Is there a way to stop that from happening
Also wanted to know about the process cdloader2. What would happen if I remove it from msconfig startup list?
I also have another question, please have a look
Remove Write Protection (USB Drive)

Thanks

What kind of process is that cdloader? Make sure you check the boy on the bottom that says hide microsoft services. Anything which left was installed by you, try disabling it, it is not a system component if it still appears after checking the box.

cdloader2 is something related to magicjack
