    I got my second hdd installed and everything, but i didnt realize how loud a HDD is until i took it out and only had a SSD in. My hdd only has media on it so it there anyway to make the HDD spin down when im not watching a movie or listening to music automatically?

    Not automatically no, unless a member here has built an app for it.

    Go into disc utility and unmount the disk.
