WD MyBook Will Not Power Down

Post by MacMichael » Dec 9th, 2008, 4:11 pm

Safely Remove v4.08 disables (disconnects?) my Western Digital WD 5000KS MYBook USB drive but will not power it down. The WD Button Manager both disconnects and powers the drive down. I have tried Safely Remove with the WD Button Manager "running" and with it totally disabled but Safely Remove still won't power the drive down.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

USB Safely Remove currently disconnects devices in the same manner as Windows do this. So if you stop a device with native Windows safe removal tool, and it doesn't power it down, USB Safely Remove won't power it down too.

We will consider adding this feature in the next version of USB Safely Remove.
