I bought a Western digital 1.5TB Green WD15EADS drive which workd fine for a couple of months and now working very slow.Sometimes works fine sometimes hangs and is ridiculously slow.I searched alot on this issue and alot of people have issues with these drives.Western digital dos not acknowledge any problem with these drives.Many people have RMA there drives to get similar drives that start working slow after sometimes.I want to try few things before RMA my driv.Could someone please explain the jumper settings for this drive.
the western digital drives come with either Deafault 1 or Default 2 options.One is already Speed spectrum already enabled ond second is disabled.How the hell are we supposed to know if the drive is default 1 or Default 2.
You're aware that the Green drives spin down after a period of inactivity, right? If the drive has spun down then there will be a delay of a few seconds the first time you access it. This is perfectly normal.
