Re: is possible remove a disck if is connect at pc by usb
USB/IDE adaptors are allowed to be unplugged with out powering down the
drive first but only on the USB side of the adaptor, not the IDE side.
One note of caution, if you are using a form of Windows XP you need to first
click on the "safely remove hardware" icon and tell it stop the drive before
you unplug the USB connector.
Using the "safely remove hardware" feature of XP you are actually telling XP
to stop using the drive, not the drive to power itself down. If you do not
do this before unplugging the USB connector sooner or later you will
scramble the data on the hard drive.
