SATA internal drive showing as Removable Device?
Feb 22, 2007, 2:29 PM
My internal SATA drive is showing up as a Removable Device in my task tray.
Is this normal for a SATA drive? It is my first SATA drive.
I wonder if I could stop it? Wouldn't that crash my system?

Sata, you should be able to stop it and remove it while the computer is running. I have never felt the need, but supposedly you can.

Does anyone else have this problem?
Should I try a new controller port on the mobo?
