    I think, it is obvious that spindown capability depends on the hdd box's chipset only. So, I'll try to summarize the facts gathered:
    Code:
    VID	PID	Vendor			Product				Working?
    0402	5637	ALi Corp.		M5637 IDE Controller		no
    04b4	6830	Cypress Semiconductor	USB-2.0 IDE Adapter		no
    04cf	8818	Myson Century, Inc.	Fast 3.5" External Storage	no
    04fc	0c15	Sunplus Technology Inc.	SPIF215A USB-SATA bridge	yes
    04fc	0c25	Sunplus Technology Inc.	USB-SATA bridge			yes
    05e3	0702	Genesys Logic, Inc.	USB 2.0 IDE Adapter		no

    0d49	3210	Maxtor			Maxtor 3200			yes
    0d49	7000	Maxtor			OneTouch			yes
    1058	0704	Western Digital		External HDD			yes

    152d	2338	JMicron			JM20338 SATA, USB Combo		no
    1652	6600	Super Top		USB 2.0  IDE DEVICE		no
    Well, try to know which chipset is in the box before buing it. This page might help.

    Lightbulb spindown on USB enclosures with Cypress chip

    Hi,

    regarding to USB enclosures with Cypress chipset, there might be a chance with following command:

    /usr/local/sbin/scsi-start 0 --pc=2 /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc

    if someone has the knowledge how to program USB access, there is a special feature in the Cypress chips to pass-through ATA commands. Details are in the AT2LP rev C datasheet might be only a few lines of code for a pro....

    also the chip has a register for setting autom. spindown value on ATA-initialisation, but I never got it to work....

    Spindown via cypres-usb chipset

    I did some experimenting:

    using my pc (ubuntu feisty fawn), I was not able to spin down the harddisk with the scsi-tools either (just as under kamikaze on a wl-500gP).

    the lsusb output of the external HD is:
    ID 04b4:6830 Cypress Semiconductor Corp. USB-2.0 IDE Adapter

    Using the sg3-utils of ubuntu (http://sg.torque.net/sg/sg3_utils.html)
    i did manage to make the disk spin down (but it didn't spin up until
    after a reset of the drive)

    I'm now trying to make a package out of it, but haven't finished yet.

    sg_utils

    I just made an package, but sadly, it doesnīt work.

    on my (ubuntu 7.04) pc, it works as expected:
    Code:
    sg_start --stop --pc=2 /dev/sda
    On my wl-500gP however, it doesnīt:
    Code:
    sg_start --stop --pc=2 /dev/discs/disc1/disc
    start stop unit: pass through os error: Invalid argument
    START STOP UNIT command failed
    I used the exact same source for both the PC and the WL-500G, both are statically build versions, so thatīs not the difference.
    On http://sg.torque.net/sg/sg3_utils.html it is noted that for kernel 2.4 the /dev/sg0 interface is required. It can be made with
    Code:
    mknod /dev/sg0 c 21 0
    But I havenīt yet figured out how to enable the support in the kernel for /dev/sgX.
    I can mount and read the disk, so scsi support itself is working fine.

    Iīm running kamikaze with 2.4 kernel (for wifi support) Is there anyone interested in testing this for kernel 2.6 ?
    Both the makefile and (compressed) .ipk file are attached.

    not working

    Succes!!

    so, it was actually quite easy.

    Hereīs a small patch to kamikaze, which selects the generic
    scsi driver as well.
    The ipkg packge (for kamikaze 2.4) is included as well.

    Use this patch to make the scsi-kmod module, then do a
    Code:
    mknod /dev/sg0 c 21 0
    mknod /dev/sg1 c 21 1
    insmod sg
    to make the devices and load the driver. Using:
    Code:
    sg_start -s -p 2 /dev/sg1
    you can now spin down a scsi device. The scsi-start utility still doesnīt
    work for me though.

    It works with this little USB Box too !

    This is a "Fake" VAIO 2.5" IDE HDD to USB2 adapter, purchased on eBay, working with an Hitachi 2.5" 80Gb IDE Disk, powered directly from the Asus:

    Guys,

    After issuing the scsi-stop, I see that the HDD stops spinning but it starts again inmediately.
    Does it means it's not working?

    Thanks
    Jose
