    Ok.... haven't had a chance to extensively test yet, but here's the situation:

    I installed a SSD in the Velocity Solo Mac Edition
    The drive shows as Removable Storage

    This was not in their documentation... and I wasn't aware, or I would have researched more first.

    My concern is that Pro Tools and Final Cut Pro X may not play as friendly with this????
    I kinda doubt there will be any performance difference, but I also don't like the eject feature being there, and the drive on the desktop

    Is there a way to change the way Lion sees the drive? Make it non-removable???

    Thanx ;)

    All my internal drives except for the boot one are Removable, doesn't seem to affect anything.

    Also, under Finder Preferences..

    Show these items on the desktop:

    Check External disks only, don't select Hard disks.

    This won't show the PCI-E based drives, only things like USB sticks or Firewire drives.

    I have a pair and they do the same thing. Does anyone know a way to change the icon to that of a hard drive?
