Hi. I just bought a 500g external drive. This drive to be exact. All in all I'm rather pleased with it. One thing I want to use it for is capturing video inside the online game World of Warcraft. The game itself has a mac video capture utility built in and I can set the path to record to my external to be less taxing on my mac. The problem is when I start recording for the first time in awhile the drive has to warm up from sleeping. This causes the video to stop recording to the drive as it can't handle all the data coming in while it is idling and starts revving up to where it's working actively. All subsequent captures after the drive is no longer idling are captured fine. It causes the WoW client to freeze and sometimes lock up entirely when it's coming off of idling though. So is there any way that I can keep the drive running instead of sleeping while I have the WoW application running? Can I tell the drive to keep working while certain apps are open? If I can how do I do this? Also is it bad to have the drive going then actively running for hours at a time? If you can think of another way to alleviate this I would appreciate it very much. Thank you for your time.
