JSI Tip 5882. When you add or remove ATAPI devices you experience significant delays during the detection process?

When you add or remove ATAPI devices, like an IDE CD-ROM drive or an IDE disk, the atapi.sys driver issues from 10 - 20 hard bus resets, to insure it can detect devices that do not properly report ATA Identify Data information. As a result of this behavior, you may experience significant delays during the detection process.
