    Sorry to start a new thread, but I thought this title might get more responses if other people are trying to google their issues.

    It IS an SSD drive, but so is my primary drive and it is listed as "Solid State SATA"

    Any ideas why this would be? Macbook Pro mid-2010, Lion.

    You mean the icon in Finder looks like a USB flash memory thumb drive?
    Or do you mean the "Solid State SATA" part?

    Primary SATA: intel ssd
    Secondary SATA: intel/apple ssd

    When i check 'system information' the primary is listed as "Solid State SATA"
    the secondary is listed as "Flash Storage"

    An SSD _is_ flash storage technically, but i am not sure why they'd be listed differently like this. I wonder if there is some setting saying there can only be one solid state sata connection?

    I really have no idea - the secondary drive can be read from fine, but nothing can write to it and it can't be unmounted.

    This has only happened after my Lion update. Both drives are formated as OSX Journal or whatever.
