I have a 1 TB My Book Essentials with the power switch. I’ve recently built a new PC and now the drive powers up on each boot.
I would like the drive to remain off on system boot and only power when I press the power switch.
In previous vista 32bit system, the drive would remain off on system boot. Thanks for anything since I’ve been googling for two days and nothing on this.
Things I’ve tried:
Disabled WD Virtual CD USB Device
Installed WD Smartware, but no power options
Windows 7 64bit
WD Essentials My Book, USB 2.0
