I have an old HP Pavilion 8505 desktop with Win XP Pro SP3 installed. The issue with my pc is that when i remove any Flash Drive through safely remove hardware and then re-insert the flash drive i can't see the removable disk drive in the 'My Computer' or in 'windows explorer'. But it is shown in the 'Safely remove Hardware'. so i have to restart the pc each time when i have to re-insert any flash drive(after safely removing any flash drive). This issue is there for all USB Mass Storage devices.
How to solve this problem ?

My PC config :
Intel Pentium III 450 Mhz
20 GB Hard disk
384 MB RAM
Windows XP Professional SP3

Might want to check for BIOS / chipset updates.
