Is it normal for Serial ATA HDDs to show up as SCSI?

I supposedly have 2x250GB Serial ATA HDD, but I'm a little concerned that they show up as SCSI in device manager (we've had other problems with the build of this machine which make me suspicious!). There is an SATA controller in device manager.

Is this normal?

Its not normal ive not seen it but ive probably not payed attention if it did, as long as its working leave it alone, also have you got your windows fully updated older service packs didnt have support for big drives and SATA so they can throw up little errors like that.
