If it's SATA, SCSI, or SAS try unplugging the drive while the system is on and plugging them back in (while the system is still on).

it's SATA and it is not hot swap –  nadersalem May 14 '13 at 5:02
    
All SATA drives and boards are hot swappable, if they are actually conformant to the SATA standard. –  haneefmubarak May 14 '13 at 7:00
