Hi

Does anybody know how to stop External Mybook hard drives from spinning down?
It takes so long for it to spin back up and load the file it's untrue.

Thanks

The only way to do it would be through the Mybook setup software. My Wife has a 300gig version and since we dont use that software (we reformatted) I havent seen the issue....but honestly Im not at her workstation all that much.
