Windows 7: Repeated attempts to "Eject" my ultrabay HD

Repeated attempts to "Eject" my ultrabay HD

So I keep getting this pop-up (Att 1), saying that I can't eject my HD b/c it's in use by other programs, close any applications, etc, etc. This is occurring frequently often but not in a consistent pattern.

[Edit: I'm not trying to eject the drive, and don't want to - it's my full-time data drive.]

I found the associated entries in Event Viewer (pasted below). Anyone got pointers on how to determine what is kicking this off?

What hard drive are you trying to disconnect. I know it can't be B or C.

Also please do this Tutorial.

Will do the tutorial and respond (sorry, getting late here).

But I'm not trying to eject anything - "something" else is. I'm just getting these annoying pop-up messages while trying to work. Currently, this drive is my D: drive - I replaced my optical drive w/ another laptop drive in a carrier in order to open up more data space (leaving C: for my OS).

Really just looking for some trouble-shooting tips - been stuck after finding the event logs.

Took a look @ the post regarding notifications, I'm not seeing this pop-up in the notification area - it's a pop-up in the middle of the desktop. I'm not sure if that's applicable?

Attaching my Disk Management picture - I'm getting the notification re: drive D. Again, a laptop hard drive that's in a carrier in the optical disk bay (which is being identified as a USB?).

Having a problem w/ the System Info App - System Info - See Your System Specs

So this is weird, I get the ".NET Framework Initialization Error", indicating that I need .NET 4.03.30319.

That said, according to my installed packages, I've got that .NET 4?

I also tried to run the app as Admin as well.

But am working to update my info manually.

I'm not seeing it listed as USB. On my system DM shows both HD's and it shows the front bay card reader as "Removable Drives". I don't see any USB in my DM view.

Does your system think the drive is removable because it's attached to the PATA connection of the removed optical drive?

Remove or disable the optical drive in devise manager is the first thing I would try. I don't know if that would disable the HD that's now connected to the optical PATA. What model laptop?

Yeah, I have no idea why this is seen as a USB...

In device manager it's listed under drive not USB (see attached). I'm running a Lenovo W520.

Also, not seeing the Optical Drive (assume it would be under the "drives", and poked around other categories.)
