    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 ;)

    Hi TableSyrup - did you find a way to fix this? In the same boat myself!

    In that one place
    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?

    This is cosmetic only... (under "Additional Information" at the bottom)
