My situation: I have a Mini-based server running with a FW800 external case (Newer Ministack quad-interface) for the main shared data volume. It is great, and works almost perfectly. My issue: I have one of the first-gen Green WD Advanced Format drives in the FW800 case, a WD15EARS. It is fast, cool, dead-silent, and I would love it, except for the fact that regardless of settings or access, it spins itself down constantly. Others have seen the same behavior, at least with this case; even with the drive being accessed actively, it spins down (and of course immediately back up) after only a minute or so. I've tried updating the case firmware, and modifying the drive's firmware with their DOS tool to extend (or disable) the spindown, none of which help. (I also saw the same behavior with an older non-advanced format WD Green drive, so pretty sure it's firmware, not a bad unit.) My question: Anybody tried other "green" drives in this sort of setup, and/or have a recommended drive that won't constantly nod off when I'm trying to use it? I want a "green" drive both for the temperature/noise/power advantage (it's in my living room and on 24/7), and because for the most part a 7200RPM drive won't get any advantage over a good 5400RPM one on a FW800 bus. The WD AV-GP ("WD##EURS") series--they're designed for DVRs and such--sound promising (I'm assuming a DVR wouldn't take well to the drive sleeping on it, and they're supposed to be designed for high duty-cycle use), but after my WD experience to date I'm a little nervous about them, particularly given the price premium. I do actually like WD in general, but I've gotten sick of this issue, and will go with a Samsung F4 or similar if necessary. Recommendations?
