I'm using an SATA to IDE adaptor, which is 100% working with a 1tb western digital HDD, when connected to my pc.
Whenever I plug my 1tb drive into my router with the adaptor, the IDE led is not flashing at the powerup. I tried to connect the IDE cable the wrong way, which caused the led to flash constantly, so the adaptor appearently does it's job.
The only thing I noticed and I think could be the problem, is that the hdd takes about 3 seconds until it's spinning up.
Could it be that this takes too long?
