Hotplug Of Removable Ide Hard Drive
I'm not sure if this is possible or not, but here goes:
I have a removable ide hard drive, the type the fits in a tray.
It has an on/off switch.
Attempts to plug it into a running system have NOT blown up the machine! (smile.gif)
However, I'm then unable to access any ide device on that port (secondary).
Any idea if this can be done?

According to the technical docs, none of the ide hard drives are designed to be hot pluggable with the exception of USB and some SCSI drives. I think SATA 2 is designed to be hot pluggable but im not sure.
in order to access the 2nd IDE channel, have your disk plugged in and with the power button set to on before powering the computer.
