Avoid Western Digital external drives' built-in spin down
Authored by: EricF on Mar 18, '09 08:52:41AM

I'm just wondering... would this solve the problem I've been having where if I boot from my WD external drive, I eventually get a panic because the OS assumes the drive is spun up, when in fact the drive has spun down, and a timeout occurs waiting for the drive to become ready again?

If that's the case, this hint will be incredibly useful!

Thanks!

-Eric
