    This is normal. Any time a USB device including a printer is inserted or removed you should hear a sound. The "you can now safely remove hardware" comes up now and then. You don't need to worry about it.

    "evrytym" What? You don't like vowels? (every time)

    Do you right click or left click on the green arrow? You can do it either way but a different box pops up to allow you to stop the device.

    Anyway, I usually left click, choose the particular device I want to remove and left click on it. How are you doing it?
