Why does my external hard disk appear as a removable disk and not a hard disk drive?

I just bought a new StoreJet External Hard Disk and it appears in the “Devices With Removable Storage” category and not in the “Hard Disk Drives” one. I used to have a Toshiba Hard Disk (external) and that used to appear in the Hard “Disk Drive” category on “My Computer”. So is there a way to make my hard disk appear as a Hard Disk Drive.

becuase external hard drives are not worthy of being recognized as a computer’s hard drive. Internals are easy to install.

External are just so not worth it. They are too expensive.
