Yesterday I installed a new 1TB SATA II hard disk and a PCI-Express x1 SATA
II controller card to connect it to.
In 'Disk Management' I made it a 'Basic' disk, made one partition of the
whole disk, and quick formatted it. It appears to be working fine.
However... in 'Device Manager' under 'Disk Drives' it lists the new drive as
'Samsung HD103UJ SCSI Disk Device'. As I already stated it is a SATA II disk
drive. When I bring up the disk's properties in 'Device Manager' it has the
same tabs as my other SATA II disks but it also has a 'SCSI Properties' tab.
I don't really understand this and am concerned that the wrong drivers have
been installed. The controller card that I installed also has an entry in
'Device Manager' under 'SCSI and RAID controllers'. I am not using the RAID
facility of the controller card but it does have RAID capabilities.
I don't want to start using the new disk until I know it's been installed
correctly and the controller card and drivers are all operating as they
should be and not set-up wrong.
Can someone advise me on this please?
Many thanks and regards, etc.,
