Hot-Swap causes internal HDD to turn off

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

As the title states, when I plug in my old laptop Hard Drive (WD Scorpio) via my hot swappable port on the 650D which uses Marvel as a third party controller, my secondary HDD to my SSD (see sig for details) just turns itself off. The only way to get it working again is to restart, then both the WD Scorpio and my secondary HDD will work. I just don't understand why my secondary HDD just turns off?

Is there a way to stop this? Is it normal, as far as I was concerned hot-swappable bay can be utilised while the PC is on. If not, then I have been misinformed.

I don't see how it wouldn't work though, it's fully formatted, there's zero on it, just changed it to exFAT so my PS3 can read it, turns out, PS3 can't read it.

Another little dilemma I'm having is, my Girlfriend dropped my old WD 640gb external HDD, so I took it apart, and used the USB-PSU adapter to power the laptop HDD, the light comes on, everything seems normal, when I plug it in, makes the correct noise, then "nothing", literally nothing happens. I've restarted, and it won't even boot, just a blank screen, I'm pretty sure this HDD is goosed, your thoughts?

Thanks for any input, it's greatly appreciated! If you need any more details I will try and provide as much as I can, but ever since the start of my new build I've had trouble with that Marvel controller, as soon as I disable it, my secondary HDD seems absolutely fine, never turns off! And before you ask, yeah, I've taken all of the power saving options off, so it's 100% nothing to do with that.

Regards,

Roxborough

I think hot swap is not compatible with all hdds . ( Dont quote me on this ) . Its safer to shut down , connect the hdd , and start up the system. This might not be the answer you looking for , but this is just a tip .

Yeah, it's pretty much what I thought frown.gif, the main thing I wasn't sure of was: "Is it safe to use my hot swap bay while the computer is running"?

And now I'm pretty sure, it's a "no", I'll just have to live with restarting my computer every time. Not a big deal.

Thanks for the reply, but after researching your statement "hot swap is not compatible with all HDD"'s this I can also not conclude. Some people have no problems at all. Other people aren't so lucky.

But I was reading about how different storage controllers work with hot-swap, and it seems not all storage controllers are compatible with hot swap. Especially third party ones like Marvel, had nothing but trouble with Marvel, I would love to swear right now, about how much hatred I have for them.

My last motherboard used Marvel too, and I had countless HDD fails. Are there any updates I can do to ensure Marvell is working 100% correctly?

Might just ring Asus, and tell them not to use Marvel. XD
