Why has it dissapeared? How can I restore it, so it comes back each time I insert a USB device?

For Windows XP ...

Right click on the Taskbar (not an icon on the taskbar) and select Properties from the pop-up menu

Select the Taskbar tab in the Start Menu Properties screen

Click the Customize... button

You should get a Custom Notifications screen

Find "Safely remove hardware" entry in the scroll list.

If its behavior is set to "Always hide", click on the current behavior setting and change it to "Hide when inactive". Accept the new setting by clicking "OK" to close the open screens.

If the behavior was all ready set to "Hide when inactive" or "Always show" when you opened the settings screen, there is some other problem that needs to be resolved.
