Posted on 2007-10-21

When I install an Epson CX4800 All in one printer in Windows XP SP2 using their install CD,
Printer works fine, but it also installs A USB Mass Storage Device----Generic Volume F:
which shows up as a removable disk in Explorer directory and the "Safely Remove Hardware" Icon is now in my task tray (next to the printer icon)
Printer has scanner and slots for camera cards (none inserted)
Even if I disable the Epson Stylus Storage USB device the "Safely Remove Hardware" Icon still appears.
Reformatted the harddrive a few weeks ago. Had the printer a few years---don't remember this happening before. Any thoughts. Plugged into USB card (2.0) also had for a few years. Thank you.
