        My recollection of RA9x drives is that when
        you transition them to RUN (either by hitting
        the button or as a result of host action) they
        is a clear "thunk".

        The order of the 4 KDB50 connections is
        essentially meaningless. It certainly does not
        determine device naming or whatever.

        The A/B port stuff also matters very little.
        If your KDB50 is connected to port A, then
        port A needs to be enabled and B is
        irrelevant. Or vice versa.
