* Serial ATA hot swap feature works only with controllers basing on Silicon Image chipset from our in-house testing. Other controllers that are not Silicon Image based may not support hot swap. You may consider adding one of the Addonics Serial ATA host controllers to your systems to ensure the hot-swap capability. New controllers from Intel and other suppliers may finally support this feature. Please verify with your controller manufacturer if you need to have a hot-swap in your application. Hot-swap is supported in Windows 2000 and XP only. On other OS, the drive can be removed without crashing the system. But replacing it with a different drive can result in crashing the OS.
