Hot swap SATA.
Posted on 2012-09-21
The computer case that I bought has a disk docking slot where I can plug and remove disk. I thought this is very useful to do my daily backup.
My pc has 4 disks in raid 1 in pci express controller.
For the docking slot, I connected to my intel motherboard DG33TL. When I tested hot swap of a disk in the docking slot, it gave two errors;
The device 'WDC XXXXXXXXXXXX' (IDE\DiskWDC_WD10EADS-00L5B1_____________________01.01A01\5&1a04b4bb&0&0.1.0) disappeared from the system without first being prepared for removal.
The system failed to flush data to the transaction log. Corruption may occur.
After research, I enabled AHCI on the motherboard disk controller, and disabled writing cache on the disk. After reboot, I tried again, one of two errors is gone, Event 12. But I still don't see the 'Safely Remove' on taskbar. I reinstalled Intel Rapid Storage manager, but still no change.
1. I don't see 'Safely remove' icon on taskbar or device manager under USB or disk controller even though I enabled ACHI and installed all drive controller of the motherboard.
2. Still getting Event 57 when I remove the disk.
