Portable Devices - Huh?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have in device manager a section for Portable Devices. I am looking at this and thinking *** is it? It doesn't make any damn sense to me. It's showing my H: drive but only the label of it and no other drives are under it, how can I remove it because CyberLink PowerDVD 13 wants to sync to it and I don't want that. It's utterly confusing to me, it's not a portable device its connected via sata cable like all the rest of them!

Do you also have the removable devices icon in the Notification Area?

Maybe the computer is seeing it as hotswap?
Some BIOS's have an option for this I believe.

Oh, the best way I can answer that is to start with 2 questions: which motherboard are you using, and which SATA port is it connected to (like, what color)?
