I recently updated my Win 7 rig to Windows 8 and have been experiencing the following strange behaviour:
After the PC recovers from S3 sleep the specific HD ( WD30EZRX) does not appear to respond/spin up at all. In other words it appears in windows explorer but clicking on it results in explorer to restart eventually since the drive does not respond whatsoever. In order to make the drive accessable from Windows I need to perform a restart of shutdown the system…
No HW upgrade has been performed and I had no similar problems when using Windows 7.
