There are several possible reasons - for example if you have a USB connected printer that is switched off - Windows will alert you if it can't find the device.
Where and when are you seeing this message! and is everything working normally as fas as you know.

I had that in the weekend on Windows 8 64-bit. Took a bit of googling to fix. Basically I had to make the USB hidden devices (previously attached ones) visible in Device Manager; delete the greyed-out USB devices. Could not find INFCACHE.1 to delete as suggested; rebooted; attached a good USB device; then attached the one it had a problem with.

If yours is Windows 7 64-bit, the fix may be the same.
