I have upgraded my Sky HDbox (thanks to this forum) to a Hitachi 1TB drive (Dekstar). It is a little bit clicky in use, and although I am aware of Hitachi's acoustic management tool I have a problem with it. I think the AM tool works from a bootable system disk, ie minimum basic systems availability. Because my computer is a laptop, I can only access the drive via a USB facility, which does not seem to be available from the bootable disk. Consequently the drive is not visible from within the utility. Other than finding a PC where I can mount the drive in a spare bay, is there anything I can do with my laptop?
