    I have a SATA drive caddy on my IC7-G.. it's on the intel sata port (set to
    RAID Enabled, but no raid stripe used)

    I have a RAID setup on the SI chip..

    the problem is when you put the drive in it's not recognised.. you have to
    reboot and then the drive is there... you can turn the drive off and remove
    it no probs, then put it back in again and it works great.. but try as I
    might it never finds it unless it's in at bootup.. what gives with that..
    hot swappable means you can plug in and out..

    anyone else played with this and found a solution.. it would be so good if
    I could put SATA drives in and out as I use the computer for editing..

    the OS needs to 'sftwr' dis/re_mount the HD

    Contact the device vendor for a proper SATA hot_swop driver ...

    Try a version of *nix that has a hot_swop(mount/dismount) capability ...

    - less than "advisable" but mite aughta work ... ;_(

    Use =precisely= similar HDs(hdwr/mbr/dir/et al) during/in the hot swop

    Perhaps try to "delete" the device , re_probe for it ... control panel.
