Question about ASUS P5LD2-VM Motherboard
The Sata hard drive I have is always recognized as Third primary master even though it is connected to the Sata 1 plug and is the only hard drive
This is normal- The BIOS shows the IDE bus as the Primary and Secondary master -The SATA 1 bus is almost always the third master.

In the Bios, make sure you have set the Sata mode to 'compatible'

I have come across this before, and I think its to do with the arrangement of the jumpers on the back of the hard drive. It usually gives a picture on the top panel of the hard drive to show you what way the jumper(s) have to be arranged to make your drive work on the Primary channel. This shouldn't really cause for much concern if your PC boots up from the third primary master, however if you have other harddrives you may have a cause of concern. Hope this helps.
