My hard drive semms to park its head after X minutes, and when I access it again it loads the head in a fraction of a second (causing a small beep),and causing disturbances to media streamed from it. Since I'm in a critical environment where I record sound, I wonder if I can totally disable this head parking function? The HDD in question is a Toshiba DT01ACA300 64MB 3TB.
I have tried: Disable APM and AMM, with no change. Normally run Windows 8, but the same problem seems to show under Linux on the same machine.
I could probably use something like KeepAliveHD ... but would prefer another solution. Also, having tried KeepAliveHD, it actually seems like it doesn't help. I can say why, maybe in some way the cash of the drive makes the drive not write the file directly, so that the drive can stay in standby mode?
