Samsung Story Station 1.5tb


Recommended Posts

I've been using this as my external for a few months, but I have an issue with it I can't work out.


After 5 minutes of inactivity, it goes into power saving mode. I can't figure out how to disable this, and its not a huge issue, but I keep a lot of files on it and often move them to and from it. Also my music is on there, so if I were to play a song off my computer, pause and wait 5 minutes, I have to wait for the drive to come out of standby again


google is not being my friend :( anyone have tips?

Looks like it's a feature ... http://www.geek.com/articles/chips/samsung...er-95-20091015/ :blink: As in, it seems like it's the hardware rather than configuration.


In the absence of any other info or ideas, the only suggestion I have is to knock up a program, even a noddy script, that accessed the drive (just a simple file access) periodically ... i.e. every 4:30-ish! Not great - but it would be almost zero overhead.
