Bekijk de volledige versie : HD spin off

06-06-2006, 20:50
i bought an asus wl500gp and i'm using it with a wd essential HD .
Looking in the NSLU2 forum ( http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/FAQ/SpinDownUSBHarddisks ) seems as wd essential hd has automatic spin-off ( on windows it spin-off ) .
The asus seems to access on hd also when there is not activity so the hd it's working 24/24 hours .
Is there a possibly solution for that?

Thanks in advantage for answers and solutions.

Best regards.

You should check any information on WD website, maybe there you will find some solutions how to disable spin-off

There is a package named "hdparm".

But I don't know if it works.
