Subject: Two much power- consumption for HD- spinup with original Disk. How uch is allowed
From: Markus Grebenstein (sassodimorte_at_gmx.de)
Date: 2004-08-20


As I already mentioned a couple of times, the harddisk (original
Hitachi) of my JBS 20 doesn't spinup without external powersupply
(directly connected to ATA 44 pin!). If I disonnect the external DC
after spinup the unit works fine!

I'm wondering if it is possible that my HD needs to much power for
spinup. Does anybody know how much is allowed?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Markus
