how to use an IDE disk after put to sleep with hdparm -Y /dev/hdb
i have 2 hard disks in my machine...
anyways, the second disk is a windows disk... rarely use it, so in my rc.hdparm i send the command hdparm -Y /dev/hdb which puts the disk to sleep, (and you hear it spin down)
anyways, whenever i try to access the disk, i get timeout errors.
how do i wake up the disk... there is no mention in man hdparm.
and the disk toed not wake up by itself.
any ideas ?
its a IDE disk, set as primary slave.
