Any ideas about the other prob i have? the "Safley Remove Hardware"thing


It'll always appear when you have drives connected to the nf4 controller, nothin you can do about it. I don't believe it'll actually let you remove it since the OS is on it though. There is an option somewhere to permanently shut off the icon, though you won't see it for USB drives and whatnot then.

Did you install the Nvidia IDE SW drivers..? Thats what makes your hdd appear as a safely removable device.. Uninstall/Install it..

I really cant remember which one but the nvidia sw drivers makes the thing appear/disappear... Also you can get rid of lot of driver listings in device manager too..
