Post subject:  Safely remove cannot Detect some devices

Is there any way to manually add USB devices not detected by USB Safely Remove? The program does not detect my USB Web cam, my Keyboard or Mouse, which it used to. The devices work, obviously, but are not shown on the list. Any Flash sticks that I plug into the USB Hub show up, but the items listed above are not.
Thanks for your assistance.

Current version displays only those devices which is marked by manufacturer with "MUST BE SAFELY REMOVED before unplugging", it seems that your another devices - Keyboard, Mouse and WebCam is marked as "Surprise removal", which means that you can disconnect them without safe removal.

Do you have any reasons to use safe removal for these devices?

No reason, Igor. Those items that I indicated were once listed on USB Safely Remove, but since some recent updates, they no longer show up. No big thing, I was just wondering.
Keep up the good work, I love USB Safely Remove! :)

does it hurt to have it in options so one could enable it if wanted ?

example:
I just bought a new Razer Lachesis mouse but it has a driver bug that forces me to replug the mouse everytime when I power up my pc ..

Ok, we will consider adding this option in the next versions, and probably make it enabled by default.

I have similar problem with a usb device things are even more complicated because I use the PC mostly remotely so I am not physicaly at the desk to plug and unplug the device when needed.

Tetla, Daimon,
you can try the latest beta version - 4.0 beta 6. It contains an option "Display surprise removal USB devices" that is enabled by default.

P.S. Tetla, I wonder why you need to safely remove this device if you cannot physically unplug it? I'm asking because usually safe removal is required before unplugging.

The items mentioned are now visible in Beta 6 and as I previously mentioned, they don't really have to be, but it's nice to know that all the USB devices are there. :D
