Seagate releases workaround for Linux users

Filed under

SEAGATE has issued a workaround for Linux users who want to use its Free Agent drives.
Earlier this week, we reported how the Free Agent range had difficulty using the Linux operating system due to the power management system.

A Seagate diskspinner called Nathan Papadopulos said that all Seagate and Maxtor branded external storage drives feature a power management that places the drive into a sleep mode after 15 minutes of inactivity.

Linux can't work with this system and can't wake the drive up once it has gone into sleep mode. Linux is throwing its toys out of its pram.

He said that the drive "needs to return" to full power mode, which can be done by simply disconnecting the USB connector and plugging it back into the system.
