Sometimes I hook up a internal WD Black 2TB to my MB the same as any internal drive. Sata cable and power.
If i go into my computer and double click the drive (G) it says application not found.
I can open the drive by right clicking and selecting ( Open ).
Its strange that also in the right click menu is an option to (install or run program from your media) in bold.

NOTE the picture of device manager show the problem drive listed as ( ATA Device )

I'm not sure if they are. How do i tell ?
Also this drive is showing up on the safely remove hardware taskbar icon.
I have a AS Rock Extreme 4 MoBo,
The 1st Drive is on a Sata 3 port (port 2) and the 2nd backup drive is on the 5th or 6th port and its a Sata 2.

see your motherboard user manual page 13 for sata channel then page 36 for the headers ans connection after page 46 to 49 for the install of the drive and the hot plug since you see it in a usb remove device .

Is there an AUTORUN.INF file in the drive's root directory?
