Default S-ata & Hotswap

I thought one of the specifics of S-ATA drives was being able to hotswap it?

Windows XP doesn't like my s-ata storage drive to be hotswapped (acts the same as if you would try to swap an IDE, it does not automaticly dedects the removal). Is it because a S-ATA Seagate 7200.7 isn't hotswappable, or is not supported by windowsxp yet?

have to do some research on that, but I don't think all SATA interfaces support hot-swap

1 SATA on a extra PCI or onboard RAID controller will never work. The drive has to be found by the raid array, and turned into a usable array first.
2 If it is truly hotswap you should get the logo to safely remove hardware in systray. WinXP only probably, and I've never seen it.
