RE: [nslu2-general] Re: Hardware problem?
- Not sure if this will help anyone, but I was having a very similar problem
where backing up large amounts of data to the NSLU2 would result in the
transfer coming to a halt after a while. The nslu2 became totally
unresponsive from that point on. At first I was placing the blame on my
Maxtor OneTouch II for going into power save mode, but after further
investigation I discovered the real problem. My nslu2 was over-heating. I
had it laying flat on a carpeted area which caused improper ventilation
which caused it to heat up. As soon as I started using the stand instead of
laying it flat, the problem vanished and it has been working great ever
since. It is on 24/7 and I perform fairly large nightly backups with no
problems. The OneTouch power saving works great and has no undesirable side
effects at all so far. Perhaps this will help someone solve the problem.
