In that case, some motherboards don't support hot-plugging. What motherboard do you have? If you are putting in the second disk with the system off, please explain further. I am reminded of the story of the man who told the doctor "It hurts when I do this." The doctor said, "Don't do that." fzabkar a c 271 G Storage August 16, 2011 2:26:49 PM More information ... Internal or external? If internal, does "shut down" mean that the computer doesn't power up? What happens when you press the power button on your case? Do the fans kick once and then stop?
