Primary HD appears on Safely Remove Hardware menu
Hey everyone I've been facing this really annoying problem ever since i reinstalled Win7 on my laptop (which was about 2 months ago). There's always an icon for "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" icon and every single time it shows the INTERNAL, NON-REMOVABLE hard drive on the list. Every single time I want to eject a flash drive or my external hard drive I always seem to click the primary hard drive. Though it only pops up an error message about "files being in use", it's gone from mildly annoying to seriously frustrating. Is there any way to remove the hard drive from the list? Perhaps a registry hack? Please help me out on this as I plug in and plug out external devices numerous times a day and this annoying quirk is tempting me to toss the laptop out the window.
Ironic how a reinstall is supposed to FIX problems huh? :confused:
P.S: here's a screenshot. The WDC entry corresponds to my hard drive.
