I can't seem to get hot swap working on the esata dock on the top of my 690 II advance. It worked just fine with my previous P45 chipset based setup.

It's an MSI X58 Pro-E motherboard. AHCI is enabled for all ports in the BIOS. I have tried loading the latest X58 chipset drivers as well as the matrix storage manager just in case. If I reboot with a drive attached it will show up. This is a fresh installation of Windows 7 HP x64.

Any ideas? Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks,

Steve

Many motherboards support hotplugging these drives, but not all of them will detect it. It depends on the chipset driving the SATA ports. I've found most Intel ones don't, and I need to go into device manager and press rescan to get it to show up.

What I've found is to install ms device console (devcon) then create a batch file to put on my desktop that runs "devcon rescan" and double clicking that will scan for drives in a matter of seconds.
