    Where is your Swap located? on the HDD?
    The system often reads swap data.

    For me the best solution was to read all program data and swap from an usb-stick and all the other data from the hdd.

    @britnet:

    swap and opt on an usb stick? How long is this active until now? Any problems with the flash memory producing errors? Is it USB v1 or v2? What about performance?

    background: This were my first thoughts for the WL-HDD. But i didnt do it because of USB 1.1 and the limited rw cycles of flash chips.

    SCSISTOP=/usr/local/sbin/scsi-stop
    LOGFILE=/tmp/scsi-stop.log
    Do:
    Code:
    cd /usr/local/sbin
    cat > scsi-stop.sh
    <copy and paste the script>
    <press Ctrl-C>
    chmod a+x scsi-stop.sh
    To run script in background do, for example:
    Code:
    ./scsi-stop.sh /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc &
    I'm a little confused. I created the scsi-stop.sh script and executed the command.
    Code:
    ./scsi-stop.sh /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc &
    Now, how do I ensure this works properly after rebooting? Should I place this line:
    Code:
    ./scsi-stop.sh /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc &
    into my post-boot file?

    And how do I spin the drive up again? Or does a user just have to try accessing a directory via SAMBA?

    Thanks.

    when SAMBA is running, the box can not spin down.

    scsi-stop into post-boot

    I have tried to put it into post-boot, but nasty things happened when i tried to do it, my router couldn't get an IP at all after i've inserted this line into post-boot.
    Code:
    ./scsi-stop.sh /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc &
    My router was working perfectly before with samba and print sharing going on.

    At the end, i had to use the recovery mode of the router to flash the firmware again. For I had completely lost the router, it's not getting an IP (I had IP reserved for it), not replying to ping, completely blocked out from me.

    Now I had everything running again, but I am afraid to put that line into post-boot again. I fear I might brick the router if i do.

    Would the router support usb hubs? I want to have a usb memory stick to act as a swap memory for the router so that the HDD can stay quiet at night time.
    Right now I have a printer plugged in and a HDD, it would be nice if i can put a hub in and attach the USB memory stick as well.

    Edit: I have put that line of code into post-boot after the first attempt (disaster), it didn't crash this time. So I must have done something really wrong back then.
    This is what I put in that works
    Code:
    /usr/local/sbin/scsi-stop.sh /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc &
    To view how you can see if the process is running in the background, type
    Code:
    ps | grep scsi

    This is strange, could you please post the VendorID and ProductID of your device. (lsusb or cat /proc/bus/usb/devices)
    According to this table your device should work if the GUID corresponds to the VID and PID.

    Okay, I just bought a 3,5''-Case which is not working (.. it was even already posted here: GUID: 05e307020000000000000000)

    But unfortunately in the list here, there a no prices or type names. I would like a cheap one - so can one recommend sth?
    this one would be really cheap - but which chipset in it?
