WD My Passport spinsdown/coolsdown/sleeps after 10 seconds?

Hi, My WD Passport always spinsdown after 10 seconds of not being used. And this is fairly annoying when I’m in the middle of a cached program that’s stored on the hard-drive and I have to wait 5 seconds for it to spin back up. Is there a way to stop this or increase the spindown timer? Thanks.

There isn’t a simple fix it’s the green technology! Here are a couple of links http://community.wdc.com/t5/Other-Externals/WD-Elements-SE-2-5-quot-1Tb-Change-Spin-down-Time/m-p/70350#M1029 and http://reviewstash.com/viewtopic.php?id=1524  I haven’t used them myself.




was very easy and worked brilliantly! Thank you!
