WD Caviar Green WD20EARS won't spin down in Apple Time Capsule


the old 500GB drive of my Apple Time Capsule died recently. I took it apart and replaced the old drive with a WD Caviar Green WD20EARS Drive. Everything went smooth and it worked right away. There is just one problem: The disc never goes to sleep!

Does it have to do with the ECO-Features of the Caviar Green drive? Is it incompatible with the Apple Time Capsule? Is there a way to fix this problem? Maybe a jumper configuration?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

anyone? Other people have the same problem!


Why can’t a hdd not just work? :frowning:

did you manage to fix it?

I have the same issue with a WD30EZRS in a time capsule a1254.
