There is a reason for many USB drives showing up as SCSI too and it is the Advanced SCSI Programming Interface. ASPI is designed for many different devices and it supported data streams long before ATA 8 did so many drivers are written to use it. If your USB drive emulates a SCSI device then it can often use the built in Windows SCSI drivers.
