6 Hot-plugging on IDE is only supported on RAID controllers that can do
7 hot-plugging. The IDE standard itself does not support it, and even if
8 it seems to work sometimes, there's a chance you can damage your IDE
9 controller.
11 To be safe, you should get an IDE-to-USB case. Then you can do
12 hot-plugging safely.
