16414RE: [nslu2-linux] Strange behaviour with Western Digital MyBook Essential 500GB
- Nov 30, 2006I had the same story when I changed my 100 gb disk with a new one of 320gb capacity with the same usb enclosure. The problem was related to the external usb box, that worked perfectly with lower capacity disk and not with the new one. I bought an Icy box usb enclosure , that is clearly indicated as compatible and everything was perfect again.
Hope this help.

In Nov 2006 I bought a NSLU2 and a Western Digital MyBook Essential
500GB external HDD.
I installed Unslung 6.8, formatted the drive with the slug and
unslinged to the HDD without problems.
Unfortunately I noticed a strange behavour. In most cases the NSLU2
boots up normally but from time to time it freezes during boot-up and
only the ethernet light is on. In this case I can do nothing but
unplug the power connector. After pluging it in again, the NSLU2 boots
up normally again. I thought this has something to do with the unslung
and reverted to original Linksys firmware v23RA5. But this behaviour
appears also with the Linksys firmware from time to time.
The second thing is that the drive should spin down when not in use.
But this does not happen with Unslung and it does not happen with the
original Linksys firmware. I am really frustrated.
Thanks for any hints.
