Any help would be appreciated! :) As of right now the only way I can get the external drive to spin down is to let it reach the time set to turn off the hard drive (via Vista Power Options) or to turn off the computer. I can tell when the external drive is spun down since the vibrations stop....

AMD 3200+ not stepping, stuck at 800 Mhz by TXXXina
