    Does anyone else see this and dont think its a bug but my primary
    drive its connected to the SATA controller from nVidia and thinks its
    a removable drive like a USB drive.

    Is this a problem? see attached picture.

    and its a Western Digital SATA-150 but the BIOS post states its an
    ATA-100, so if anyone can help me.

    thanks!

    I have no idea how to fix this.

    I have a pair of Raptors on the Nvidia in a RAID set, and a pair of
    DiamondMax10 drives on the Nvidia in another RAID set.

    All four of those drives show up individually in my "Safely Remove
    Hardware" icon in the System Tray.

    Anyone know how to remove these from the listing?

    I have a memory stick reader that gets used often, and one of these days
    somebody is going to accidentally tell WinXP to remove one of those hard
    drives!

    The SATA drives are HOT swappable just like an external USB Harddrive or a
    flash memory card, That's why they show up on your removable device list. I
    don't think you can remove them from the list. Anyway you wont hurt anything
    if you accidentally removed an HD just reboot, it wont permanently delete
    the drive from your system.

    Noone seems to have noticed the nice backplate that allows you to
    connect two SATA drives outside the case. This is only really usefull if
    the SATA drives are hot-swapable, so you can connect a drive externally
    to the nForce SATA150 controller rather than use USB2. It makes making
    external backups so much faster.

    There seems to be no way to make the icon in the system tray go away
    though. But hey, trust me, you'll get used to it.
