My drive is too noisy when seeking. The drive’s specs say there are two seek mode: Quiet seek mode and Performance seek mode. How can I make my HDD to work only in the Quiet seek mode?
don’t know what utility you will need for this
if too noisy check this kb article
Don’t think the two seek modes are meant to be changed by the user.
try ‘hdparm’. it’s native in linux, in windows you need to install cygwin first. examples incl. ‘too noisy’ solution: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hdparm
