I am new here and I haven’t seen this topic.
I have recently connected a 1TB USB 3.0 HD on the N900 (without the internal HD) and I noticed that this USB drive is continuously doing stuff (light is flashing) and I hear it also physically.
It is an USB drive I used to attach directly to my laptop but I decided to attach it now on my N900 so everyone/device can have access to my backup files.
On my laptop it went to sleep when doing nothing but now it doesn’t. I looked this at 2am and it was still sweating while nobody was accessing it.
I don’t like this as I am afraid it shorten my USB drive’s live very much.
Is there a solution for this?
Note: It is self powered by the USB and via an power adapter. I have activated everything except for the DLNA.
thanks in advance for your help.
