Removing a USB device - any "safe removal" steps?
In windows, I have to click a taskbar icon and cancel the function of a USB device before it can be safely removed.
New to Mac OS, and wondered if there is a similar process or whether a flash drive/etc. can just be unplugged.

Depends on what type of device. If its a USB pen drive for example, use Finder and eject the drive, just like a normal 'drive'. Same deal with an iPod/iPhone - it should be ejected, but use iTunes for an iPod/iPhone.
For a peripheral (scanner, keyboard) just unplug it.
In short, if the device contains 'files/music/photos/video' it should be ejected.

Safe Removing of USB modems on Mac?
How do you safely remove internet sticks on a Mac?Ļ
I donīt see any icons to throw in the trash! What to do?
I have Huawei E169 internet stick and my system is OSX 10.4.6.
I used to have a Nokia CS-15 USB internet stick and I removed it in various ways, but it always gave me error messages about unsafe removal of the USB-device.
Now I havenīt removed this device at all (and not even closed my computer at all) cause I donīt find any safe way to remove the device!
