Safely eject question

I've got an hdd in a hot swap bay and,of course it shows in "safely remove hardware."

But it also lists an internal hdd.

PSCO mate just go to Computer right click on the drive you want ejected and eject.

No Mate,

The hdd I;m talking about is INTERNAL.

My question is why is it listed in "Safely remove Hardware"?

Sorry to say, I have no idea what you are talking about.

There isn't anything wrong with the drive - do you understand the question?

the others are on call scanners but if you are not happy (and you do seem a tad on edge) with doing some elimination PSCO then I shall leave it for someone else.

PS the two I added are filing system checkers thats all.

It may be because the drive in question is attached via the Marvell SATA ports. Check your BIOS to see if the port is set as a Hot Swap, if so, change it to Disabled.

Thanks for reply,

My MOBO - Asus p8z77-v, doesn't have that specification and this strange inclusion in "safely remove" is a little confusing.

I have a Hot Swap on my Case -Thermaltake RX-1.

I think you are misunderstanding.
How exactly do you eject an Internal HDD?
