    USB Loader (USB Hd Spindown Issues)

    i was wondering if anyone has been following some issues about hd spindown problems...by my understanding of what i have read some issues that are causing games to freeze after certain lengths of time could be due to this issue...I was just wondering if this is correct or anyone has any input on this discussion

    From what I hear it happens on some drives WD or Maxtor , not sure, I believe but they have a harddrive manager that you can take care of it.


    EDIT: It happens on some maxtor drives but can be taken care of with maxtor manager check this compatibility pagehttp://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/index.p...ity_List#500GB

    i know that part about the manager but i was interested in weather this problem is the one causing games to sometimes freeze up during game play or if this just effects the game if its been paused for too long
