    Removable Storage , C drive ~

    I get this from time to time with SATA drives.

    I just put a 200GB Samsung SATAII drive in a new Epox nForce4 board, all is funky except that the C & D drives (I partitioned the 200Gb drive in half) both show up as removable storage in the task bar , this means I assume that anyone could easily `remove` the root drive.

    I looked in disk management but there the drive is not marked as removable ... any ideas how to stop them showing up in the removable storage applet ?

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    Thats really odd.. I know some frontpanel add ons have SATA ports, but it seems odd that root hard drives are showing up as removable :S

    Hi, I am having the same problem with my SATA drive, how did you resolve your problem? How can I remove my SATA drive from removable storage list? Thanks.

    I think in the bios, truth be told I messed around in bios and windows and the problem went away but I don't know which actually `cured` it

    If by any chance you remember, can you pls let me know. I tried everything possible in Bios and it did not resolve my problem.
    I think it is Windows but I still have not figured it out, I checked removable storage information on MS website and it did not help much. I tried google and nothing, I am running out of places to look at.... Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
