View Full Version : Removeable Hard Drive???

12-29-04, 08:17 PM
Howdy yall! I've been a reader of these forums for about 3 years now....yes, I know....I've only posted a handful of times. Anyway, I put together a new system, and for some reason, windows xp is recognizing my hard drive as being removeable like a USB key drive. It obviously will not let me remove the drive, but the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon sits in the tray all day long. I've checked M$ support to no avail, and ASUS hasn't returned my calls or emails.

Also, with dual gigabit LAN ports, the nvidia chipset drivers only installed one port, with windows recognizing the 2nd port on restart. I then installed the marvel drivers for the 2nd LAN port. For some reason, I can't get both ports using the same drivers.

Anyone got any ideas?

My new rig:
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
AMD Athlon 64 3000+
512 MB Corsair XMS
1 eVGA 6600GT (until next paycheck)
WD Raptor 36.7GB SATA
