when an usb device is plug into a computer (running window XP pro) a little icon appears in the taskbar area and the usb device can be ejected via that icon.

The problem is the icon does not appear when a usb device in inserted, so once I am done with the usb device, (ie an external drive) I can't reject it.  

Is there a way to eject a usb device or bring back the icon?
