New PC running VISTA
Ihaven't connected any external devices yet except mouse and keyboard. I'm slowly trying to get used to Vista. However in the taskbar is the icon to remove hardware safely and clicking on this it shows WDC 50 OOAACS-OOZUB SCsiDSA drive
NO way am I going to select this so I contacted Medion. Indian call centre. Asked my question and I presume the operator then asked someone for advice as she put me through to the music tape.
The answer. You want believe this.
" Its nothing to worry about "
Has anyone an answer for me
Thank you

Yep ! I've been here before BUT when I start connecting my external drive etc and I accidently click the wrong one then just what have I disconnected ( MY hard drive ) ????

"and I accidently click the wrong one then just what have I disconnected ( MY hard drive ) ????": Yes

Yes its your hard drive

but I doubt Vista will let you disconnect the drive it is running on, XP certainly won't.

I guess, from information given this click here is it.

I doubt its your hard drive showing there doesn't the 8830 have a pre wired external easy fit external hard drive bay? is this what you are seeing? It also i think has an integrated card reader which should show up in your computer (by the way don't safely remove these as you will diable the readers function )

Do as I do, If you need to disconect External Drive/s, Disconect when the PC is turned off,

Cheers ! Remember I'm a rookie
This machine has has a socket (s) ontop to fit Medions own external drive. The connections have covers on (dust covers they call them)
This hasn't been touched from new but I wondered if this had anything to do with it.
I will try sending an email to Medion but the form filling is gross
Thank you

If you think about it the bay on the top has pre wired connections power usb and is connected to the mother board via sata, think your comp is reconising this settup even though there is no external hard drive inserted
