    Now, why would this be disabled? :confused: (This was an advertised feature)

    Hmm... Dunno why it happened, but this article tells you how to re-enable it (and how to disable it again if you like). :)

    Having said that, I have a feeling some video-editing apps disable it.

    Try smacking it really hard to see if the drive parks. ;)

    If you enable it using Crab Man's link, do the two then agree with each other?

    Yeah, throw it against the wall... Sideways!

    Alternatively, reboot and see what they both say...
