I can't see where on earth you are getting this from.

you said that the SSDs were not SATA
No I did not say that.

Quote:
you inferred that an optical drive could be SSD
I didn't infer anything of the sort.

How you manage to imagine such ideas in my singular line thus
Quote:
All of your drives, including optical are either SSD or SATA.
is beyond me pet.

Correctomudo, Wolf, In the days of kit computers, Commodore and Atari going head to head with Macintoshes, Small Computer System Interface was all that was available for kits and store-bought PCs.
One controller, you can daisy chain up to seven drives/devices but you had device ID numbers to set. When Integrated Drive Electronics came out they put a small subcontroller board on HDDs, as a means to get HDD prices down, as SCSI were pricey, then you needed Centronics for the printer port, but with IDE the restriction became no more than two chained per controller, then SATA was a return to the original SCSI, USB is also a part of it as we never really left SCSI since what came after were just variants.

fireberd your sata/scsi is probably coming for you chip set and bios.
For what ever reason it seem like your motherboard can handle both; what ever is plugged into the sata port. My Intel SSD's with my Asus motherboards don't show scsi.
I run from any ports that are under the control of Marvell.

This Gigabyte motherboard has a "Marvell 91xx 6GB controller (x2)" according to the Belarc Advisor. Nothing about "SCSI" in the Belarc Advisor.

It all works, just wondered why the two programs listed "SCSI". Must be something in the Gigabyte motherboard.

Jack this has always puzzled me too. On my 3770K system it indeed lists storage drives as SCSI in AS SSD and Speccy. On my 2550K system it doesn't, all are connected to the native Intel SATA ports.

@Bob, maybe I can help or be more confusing. SSD is a type of drive, SATA is a drive interface. No harm no foul.

Gary it is confusing but I don't think it's anything to worry about. I also use Intel sata ports.

My SSD is on an Intel SATA III port, one HDD is on a Marvel SATA III port, and the other HDD is on one my LSI HBA card's SATA II ports. All three show SCSI in Speccy. No worries.
