I have a server that has a removable SATA hard drive connected via USB (the drive bay is conneccted via USB). This drive is shared as G$ (administrative share).  My problem is that when a HD is removed and replaced, the drive becomes inaccessible to computers on my domain. I can browse the drive from the server on which it's installed, but  I cannot access it via \\server\g$ anymore unless I reboot the server.

you should be able to resolve this a few different ways:
net stop netlogon
net start netlogon
      *might* work
net share g$ /delete
net share G$=G:\
      *should* work

Bravo!  I created a batch command and have scheduled it to run every Friday at 5:00 (we always swap the drives on Friday).
