WD MyBook Essential 500GB Spindown
I have one of these drives with my NSLU2, with Unslung version 6.10. I
have natively formatted it, and unslung to it on port 2. The drive
has integrated spindown after about 10 minutes (I tested this under
windows before formatting it with the slug), however when it is
attached to the NSLU2 it never spins down. It looks like something is
accessing it every couple of seconds.
I have looked at this newsgroup, and the problem was reported over a
year ago in this thread:
The suggested fix seems to be to run Unslung 5.5. I was just wondering
if there is a better solution than this now? The problem still seems
to be present in 6.10.
