Question Harddrive!!!!

I am using a Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive. I don't know what i did wrong but windows is acting like my harddrive is external. This harddrive is soppose to be Master and it is the only one. Windows displays that icon on the task bar(a little harddrive with a green arrow), it is the Safely Remove Device option from windows. How do i get rid of that? The harddrive is OEM, and doesn't come with any instructions or anything.

No, thats completly Normal, that Icon will always be there. Its Because SATA is Hot swapable.

I also have a SATA HD and have the same Icon, as I am sure many others do.
