    I just recently went through getting my wiimote working with my pc (to play PSOBB and other games), and I'm wondering if there is any safe way of removing the bluetooth adapter (its a USB dongle), because I don't see a "safely remove" option, and even if I disable it in the device manager, the leds are still on on it. Is it alright to just yank it out while its still on? Don't want to break it.

    If you're that concerned, just turn off the computer before unplugging it.

    I belive it is. Remove safely option is for data storage as far as i know. I did unplug my bluetooth adapter many times.

    safe to remove is usually only for if data is cached, so you need to initiate the remove to have it properly save everything so there's no data loss. unplug away
