something weird with my SATA HDD

Right click My Computer.
Go to Properties.
Click the Hardware Tab.
Go to Device Management option.
Double click the HDD and go to Policies tab. Here you have the two options of optimising your hard drive for quick removal (which disables write caching and means you can discunnect the HDD without using the Safe Removal icon) or to optimise for performance (which enables write caching and allows you to remove the HDD from the Safely Remove Hardware icon you keep getting).
If it bugs you that much, you can always change from performance to optimise for quick removal, but personally I prefer to have write caching enabled - besides the Safely Remove icon has never bothered me so much anyway.
* I have Windows XP SP1 - options may differ on your system.
Go to Control Panel
Taskbar and Start Menu
Click Customize and from there select the behavior of Safely Remove Hardware to "Always Hide".
So, hope this helps?
