You just need to go into your Device Manager to turn off the "Safely Remove" function.

here I took a picture:


Open Device Manager, open Storage controllers, then just right click "Marvell 91xx...", choose properties, then go to the policies tab, and uncheck the box "Enable safely remove disk."

I would then reboot, to see the change.

Hi, i think this necropost could help other people, if you have a Marvell controller (91xx) and you cannot find the Policies tab (on Windows 8.1 the driver installs itself correctly but the tab is not visible) you can fix the problem editing the registry in this way:

- Open regedit
- Go to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> CurrentControlSet -> Control -> Class -> {4d36e97b-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
- Add a new string value with name "EnumPropPages32" and Value Data "mv91xxm.dll,ESATAPortPropPageProvider"
