Close several programs or windows to facilitate might be utilizing the device and try the entire in excess off again. I had hit it off on OK and the whole thing works extremely well. Does anybody be familiar with why I am getting this error message and what I be able to do to keep it from popping up.

    The error merely happens when the HDD is attached to the DVD slot. Mutually correlations are SATA. It sounds similar to the issue is that the system thinks with the intention of the drive is tranquil a CD-DVD drive, and not a Hard Drive to facilitate not be able to be ejected. Perhaps there is a number of method in moreover disk management or the bios to tell it to facilitate the drive is a hard drive.
