Giggle n' Bits 22:28 01 May 2006 Locked Just installed windows clean using the correct SATA NForce4 Drivers for my Gigabyte HDD and notice that near the System Tray.The HDD is showing as a "Safely Remove Hardware" item ! How can it be when its internal and fixed.This is a internal HDD can someone please tell me if this is ok to be showing as a removable device please. Giggle n' Bits 00:46 02 May 2006 don't think unplugging a SATA HDD would be wise while being switched on, just imagine frying the drive or something.
