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

Win7 Ultimate 64 bit

Hi Lady Fitz:

Thanks for your reply and info...appreciated.
I am not actually defragging my SSD (my system drive) like you would a mechanical HDD as that would not do the SSD any good at all. I use System Mechanics SSD Accelerator which optimizes & the efficiency off the SSD. I presume it performs similarly to RAM optimization software utilities. After I have run the SSD Optimization utility (1 per month) I do notice an improvement in boot and in software response times.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Hey, my SSD and HDs were shown as SCSI as well when I installed the OS a month ago. I would not have noticed it but Samsung Magician was acting up. It turned out that I had SB850 SATA3 ports set as RAID in the BIOS. After editing the registry for AHCI drivers, I changed the BIOS SATA type to AHCI and booted up. All disks are ATA devices now and also Magician correctly identifies the SSD.

Hope this helps.

Sata Devices reporting as SCSI, performance issues?
Good evening, Just installed Windows 7 RTM and my Sata HDD's and DVDRW are reporting as SCSI devices. I would get this problem in XP if I installed the mobo's raid drivers by accident. If I did then the devices would report as SCSI and the dvd burner would report as a cdrom and would not burn...
