SATA internal drive showing as Removable Device? Tags: Homebuilt Sata Devices Systems Last response: February 23, 2007 12:08 PM in Systems Share bimmerbill February 22, 2007 2:29:15 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?
