And with a 4PDT switch changing both drives between Master/Slave VS Slave/Master, this should ensure that each one can get its bus enabled, and only when the other has its bus disabled. The only drawback with this method is that both drives will draw supply power, but as I see it that is inevitable, unless you want to disconnect one of the drives entirely from the bus as well as from the power supply.
Just cutting power is NOT a valid method of disabling a bus driver.Quote:
@All: If anyone has done it, could you please share with us whether it does work?
As for Brodieman's solution, both disks are set to "Master", and power is being directed to only the active drive.
It might still work, but it is definitely not a technically valid method.
(May lead to weird loading of the bus.)
