    SATA hot plug


    Hi,

    Does SATA hot plug work in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64bit? When I plug in a SATA device while the OS is running, it doesn't seem to register in fdisk. It worked when I was using Mandriva.

    How do I get it working under Ubuntu?

    Thanks.

    Hi.

    the first thing to do is to check weither the disk is seen or not. The right command to do so is "dmesg". Check the end of the file to see weither your disk is detected or not. Some computer BIOS require that you enable "HOT PLUG" for SATA. It can also be mandatory that your SATA is "AHCI" and not "IDE", still in BIOS...

    Thanks. Turns out it was a problem with the drive.
