Safely remove hardware problem

I have an internal Belkin card reader which used to work fine, but
recently when I use the safely remove hardware icon, and am notified
that it is safe to remove the hardware [sd card or compact flash card]
when I remove the card the green ready light goes off and it will no
longer read any device, and all removable media drives disappear from My
Computer. When I look at device manager I get the following message.
"Windows cannot use this hardware device because it has been prepared
for "safe removal", but it has not been removed from the computer.
(Code 47)
To fix this problem, unplug this device from your computer and then plug
it in again."

If I restart the computer, it works again as long as I do not use the
safely remove hardware option. If I remove the flash card without using
this procedure everything continues to work.

Thanks
