hi

i have one main HD (IDE) and my OS on it

i added 2 new SATA dvices one HD and one DVD Burner everything work fine

but i dont understand why it apears on my removal dvices (just like it does when i conect USB dvice)

i think its because the new technology SATA uses (unlike IDE i can plug unplag it when the Pc is on) therefore it is shown as removal dvice

maybe its normal thing i dont realy know i see it only on my Pc

anyway i would like to fix it , if there any way to

here is the pic:

Hey TechPc1
I am looking at the picture that you have provided but it makes no sense.
Also which one is appearing as a removable device the hard drive or the disk drive?
Please provide a little more info.

Regards
~powerjuce

Go into your system BIOS and see if those devices are shown properly. You may have to adjust settings for the hard drive in bios.

If your BIOS is set to deploy SATA devices in AHCI mode...chances are that's the answer, IMO. One of the attributes of SATA drives under AHCI is that they are removeable/hot-swappable.

It's worth a look.

System manufacturer and model?

There is no set pattern for BIOS configuration...you need to look carefullly at each screen. There may be some words about the "SATA controller" or "SATA configuration."

Louis

There should be a section in your owner's manual (for either the system or the motherboard) indicating BIOS settings and default settings.

and i found else things about SATA RAID and so on.....

FWIW: Link to all manuals available for download...that relate to your board, http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherb...?ProductID=1783

I cannot detect anything from what I've looked at. I cannot tell if AHCI mode is available from the screens illustrated in the manuals I looked at.

It was just a guess...
