eSATA external drive identified as SCSI Disk Device

Post by StepOne » May 15th, 2008, 9:27 am

Hi,

I am 'road testing 'SafelyRemove v3.3.1.617.

When I plug-in my eSATA external hard drive, SafelyRemove incorrectly states that the drive is a 'SCSI Disk Device'

It would be nice if SafelyRemove could correctly identify my external drive as eSATA.

Hi StepOne,
Thanks a lot for the note! We get this name from vendor's description of the device. So, probably it's a hardware issue. But you can fix it easily - just rename this device in the device stop menu and you'll see correct name.

In future versions we will improve device naming mechanism, but sometimes hardware vendors give not obvious names to devices.
