Building a hot swap drive system using a Mobile Rack

To build a hot swap removable drive system, the power to the converter must be able to shut off when the Mobile Rack is turned off. This will trigger a message to the OS to dismount the drive. To implement this feature on any Addonics IDE Mobile Rack, be sure to use the special 2-pin to floppy power cable, that comes with the package, to connect the converter power to the small 2-pin output power on the back of the Drive Cradle (the tray that mounts inside the drive bay).

For Mobile Rack from other manufacturers, you need to wire the power cable from the converter to the 5V power inside the drive cradle. Contact your Mobile Rack supplier for the 5V power connection information.
