Windows 7: My SATA devices show up as SCSI??

My SATA devices show up as SCSI??

Several system information utilities I've run show the SATA devices as SCSI? Any reason?

Here are two screen shots. One is from Speccy and the other is from AS SSD Benchmark.

I wouldn't worry about it Fireberd.

Your devices might incorporate some SCSI technology but that's all.

All of your drives, including optical are either SSD or SATA.

This is a common thing that happens in uttilities. Like Wolfeymole said, you should not worry.

As far as not worrying about it goes, it's usually nothing to worry about. However, non-native ports are driven by chips, such Asmedia or, especially, Marvell, and can be less reliable than native ports driven by the CPU. If a drive shows up in the Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media menu, you may want to consider relocating it to a native port (then again, if it ain't broke, don't fix it).

She is saying that the two different types of drives are very unlike so you should not compare.

Just what I said. All the drives shown are SATA, including the two SSDs. SATA refers to the bus the data travels over. SSD means Solid State Drive. Both SSDs and HDDs (Hard Disk Drive) can be SATA. Your comparison is like saying two F150s and a RAM are either a pickup or a Ford.

I must have missed the part where I wrote that I was comparing them.

As you probably know in the good old days before SATA was invented SCSI was the better drive over PATA, transfer rates were like a greyhound out of trap one with SCSI.

I might be new to the forum but I go back as far as 3.1, I hope that enlightens everyone.

Apologies if I've upset anyone.

This: All of your drives, including optical are either SSD or SATA.

By saying all the drives are either SSD or SATA, you said that the SSDs were not SATA, which is not true. Also, you inferred that an optical drive could be SSD, which is also not true. You may know better but that is not how you said it.
