    Hi to all!

    So... I wondered: Ubcd4win does not support plug and play, right?
    I mean: if I connect an USB hard disk, a pen drive after booting from the CD, they are not recognized

          I actually answered there also but Ed_P is a dick ( IMO ) and hasn't approved my post yet... he censors users that post opinions different than his own...


          UBCD4Win is plug-n-play compatible... you plugin in a device before you boot and it will automatically be detected if the drivers that are needed already exist for the device.

          What you are asking for, I believe, is refered to as hot pluggable... not plug-n-play. UBCD4Win also supports this but it isn't automated, in otherwords not as you plug them in as in Windows. You must run the HWPnP plugin to detect newly plugged in devices... if those devices are things such as a hard drive or flash drive... you then must run the Disk Management to assign an available letter to the partitions.

          This is a limitation of PE builds in general...

          PS, you'll see my reply on 911CD when Ed_P finally feels like approving the post
          Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....

            Well, if it's so, I'll answer here! F**k censorship!

            Yes, you're right, actually, I meant hot swapping!

            Ok, I started HWPnP: if I select "Force install devices", it messes up something, that is, my internal hard drives disappear from computer resources!
            So, I tried "Install USB drivers", but only pen drives are recognised at once, that is, they appear in computer resources
            If I connect an external hard disk, I have to assign a letter, as you said

            So, it's not possible to start HWPnP directly while booting the CD, so that hot swap USB devices?

              HWPnP already runs during the boot process, that is how devices get detected during the boot.... the hot swap has the limitations already mentioned, you have to re-run HWPnP and then mount the drive to a letter manually.
              Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....
