Can hot-plug-in and out SATA cables from mobo during run?
Can I arbitrarily plug in and out SATA cables (coming from DVD and (external) hard disc) into and from SATA slots on the motherboard? or does this cause hardware damages? Are thesDVD and external hard discs detected automatically by Win7 or do I have to click somewhere "refresh" ? Peter
