PX716SA listed as PX716A in device manager

Hello,
I tried installing a PX716SA using the Sata port on my Intel D915PGN MB which didn’t work so I added the adaptec pci sata card and all seems fine except that the drive is listed as a PX716A in device manager and Nero’s info tool. Is this normal?

Thanks

Yes, that is completely normal and is done for compatibility purposes–that way Nero and other burning apps recognize it and treat it like the PX-716A. Also, the PX-716SA is just the PX-716A with an IDE to SATA bridge adapter.
