I have a fresh install of Vista Home Premium. The main drive is a SATA drive in which it is partitioned in two. C drive and E drive. C drive is where vista resides. Now i have the "Safely remove hardware" icon in the taskbar, when i click it i get the choice to "shutdown the SCSI HDD" which is the SATA master. This drive is not a SCSI, can i remove it from this menu incase any of the kids try to remove it instead of their usb pen drives. And why has it shown up like this?????

Depending on the drivers installed this is normal.

Look in device manager and I bet your SATA drive shows up as SCSI there as well. Installed any driver updates lately?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
