Hi, I have a 3.5" WD hard drive connected to my computer using a SATA to USB adapter to my Windows computer.
I am using it as a secondary/external hard drive, it is not my main internal hard drive.
When I don’t access that hard drive for some time and then I go to access it,
I have to wait a few seconds to several seconds for it to load, like it takes some time to start up again properly (powering up kind of sound).
I believe this is caused by something called headparking?
How can I disable or change how long until it head parks?
I have tried using the “AAM/APM Control” feature (AAM set to OFF and 00h) in the software “CrystalDiskInfo” which I believe works in disabling head parking for my internal hard drive and other externally connected hard drives but not this WD hard drive.
Or is this caused by something else?
