I’ve been using Western Digital’s MyBook World Edition (white light) for the last half a year or so. Until recently, everything worked fine but last week I noticed that the disk doesn’t spin down anymore. There seems to be constant activity on the device. Using ssh to log in, I noticed that there are quite a lot of services running which I thought I had disabled previously, including twonkymediaserver and miocrawler.
I tried to disable them by doing the following:
chmod 644 /etc/init.d/S97twonkyserverchmod 644 /etc/init.d/S9M_mionet
So far, without success.
Update (20/04/10): I finally got around to test the fix mentioned in the comments – and it worked!
To summarise, I did the following:
- log in via ssh
- edit the file
- add the following lines to the beginning of this file:
- reboot the device
if [ ! -f "/etc/.mionet_on_startup" ]; then exit 1 fi
