    Not sure if you really need to change it at all since AV-GP drives have it totally disabled. I missed the (N-128) part in the MAN page I looked at and thought it was just N*30 seconds.

    Nope, the man page didn't say it, but the source code does. It writes a single bite as a parameter to change the drive's idle value and the only way to get 300 seconds is with the calculation of (N-128)*30

    As for the Drive not needing it, well all I can say is now my 651260 is finally chugging along happily after I set the value to 300.

    A WD20EZRX isn't an AV-GP drive.

    Right, which was why I pointed him to disabling Intellipark to solve his problem. ;)

    My point was that setting it to a very high value shouldn't be a problem versus setting it back down to 300 seconds *since* AV-GP drives have it totally disabled.

    Sorry apparently I wasn't clear, I meant you could have left it set to whatever 255 works out to be in seconds (3810?) and I don't think it really needs to be 300 seconds specifically since the AV-GP drive has it totally disabled.
