USB device not showing up on the Safely Remove Hardware list

Hi, I have a HUAWEI USB modem for my wireless internet. It doesn't show on the Safely Remove Hardware list. It does show in the Device Manager\Disk drives as a
SD Storage USB Device, also in Devices and Printers and in Computer. It was showing
up in my Vista system. Is this normal?
Thank you for any help.
