It works fine for me. I mount/umount the drive, pop it in/out (I have
the launch utility automatically start a new dev-eide when you pop the
drive in and terminate it when the drive is popped out) without any

Conversation: Hot swap pc card drive
Subject: Re: Hot swap pc card drive
But will the hot swap be handled good? IDE isn’t designed to physically
disconnect or connect
drives during operation, is it? I imagine that the PC Card adapters with
PCMCIA controllers (as opposed to the dumb, (almost) entierly
PCCard / ATA-adapters) will detect and notify the OS when drives are
connected and disonnected?
I don’t doubt though that the Fsys driver survives a device
disconnecting from the IDE bus,
but it may perhaps affect communication any other drive connected to the
same IDE channel?

we need a compact flash drive with hot swap support, i.e.
the possibility to insert and remove the card at any time.
IDE interface is preferred, but not a must. It’ll be installed
in a standard desktop PC.
Are there any such boards with matching QNX drivers?
Adtron has suitable hardware (SDDB series), but I’m waiting for
info about which chipset these uses.
