This was pretty easy to resolve. disconnected all the USB
accessiories; went into device manager and uninstalled everythingh
under Universal Serial Bus section.
rebooted and recopnnected all the devices one by one. They were all
recognised, and are running. The 'safe to remove usb device' icon is
back too.
thanks for the moral support!
