    Hot swap IDE device

    I have the need to hot swap an compact flash card that is hooked up
    to an IDE bus. The lines will be isolated so powering won't be an issue.

    My question is will the kernal reprobe the bus if a device is added/removed?

    If the kernal doesn't reprobe the bus is there a way that I can manually
    do it in software?

    I am running kernal 2.6.12 (not sure on the minor number).

    Thanks in advance

    Hmmmm, I wasn't aware that you could do hot-swapping on an IDE bus. But even if you can, wouldn't it be easier to manage if you migrated this solution to a USB bus rather than IDE?
