Or is there a patch or someway to do this at this time without shutting down...(and don'tsay unmount pull drive, that causes an inumeralbe amount of problems as you can imagine)
Or atleast a way to shut off/on(or mount/unmount the whole bus) the universial bus to allow warm plugging?

But of course you have to make sure you have hotswappable drives...You don't really wanna take a normal IDE drive out while you're running..."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."

thnx lord ...all that stuff works though,I think i was actualy looking for a way to warm plug thease drives so i wouldn't momentarily fry the system ( It's done in windoz with a software utility)
now sarumont your right ones an ide,ones a scsi,& one is floppy.
for me this is no longer an issue ..i just use a usb flash drive and the cd/dvd
and shutdown to put the burner in. just thought i'd see if there was a way.
so i take it there will be no way to do this ......cause they now have cd -r-rw/dvd/-r-rw as one drive now on the newest lappies eh!......plan:
sell generator buy new lappie as planned
