Windows 7: Disk on port 2 detected

Disk on port 2 detected

Win 7 Home Premium. A few times lately I got a small popup notification near the systray saying "Disk on port 2 detected". Seems to be related to Intel Rapid Storage Technology shown in the systray. Inside the systray I right click that "Technology" icon and then Open Application. I get a window saying "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to your computer?" The program name is IAStorUI. When I click Allow I get the attached window that stumps me. I don't know what to do or even if I have a problem. it doesn't seem to be a problem but I would like to know why I'm getting the first little popup notification. Can anyone help with this?

Regarding DVD - I had a problem ripping from a regular CD to Windows Media player. It did 2 tracks then heard some funny noise and the rip appeared to stop so I cancelled the rip. Another CD ripped but did not show the bitrate for some of the tracks. Later on I tried another CD and it ripped without a problem. Then tried that first CD again and computer didn't recognize that there was a CD in the slot. I had to restart to eject the CD.
