Power Managment HDD not powering down
« on: December 18, 2007, 03:04:34 PM »

Hi,

I have a problem will the two new HDDs I placed into the DNS-323, one of the HDDs was DOA but I did not know this and the unit did not tell me (I have been over this in another post) but the unit did power down the drives as I would have liked, since I have replaced the faulty HDD reformatted the drives as RAID 1 the drives have not been powering down and the temperature is currently about 48 C (very hot). I do not have anything plugged into the USB port.

Power Management is Enable and set to 10 minutes, I have tried turning off power management and than turning it back on but still not working. This is a very important part of this device and I need it to work as summer is just about here and the temperature is going up.

I have not tried resetting the firmware back to factory default, does anyone think this mite work?

Firmware Version 1.03
Two WD Carviar 500 GB SATAII Disks
Plugged into a gig switch

Any I dears

I'd just like to bump this up to the top as I too have this same issue.  However, I have tried reverting to factory settings, and it still does not go into power save... 

Thoughts?

Thanks!

In the last week the HDD's have been powering down and this function seems to be working fine now, I have not changed any settings at all but the temperature has dropped down to about 36 C when not in use and the device takes about 10 - 20 seconds to access the data while the drives are powering up so for now I'm happy... ;D

Thanks
