It seems that my external hard drive does have a “spin down & stop” utility available from Western Digital. It looks software driven for all Windows platforms.

Based on this I’m assuming that I’ll have to try Method 3, using scsi-idle once I get my slug?

Again – anyone successful in spinning down one of these WD800B008 series drives?

Thanks, and sorry for all of the questions. This is very new to me.

Once I get the slug and start preparation I will start a new thread.

Please be nice … 😥
