Hello, thanks to Mark I try to disable the WD blocked software.

I try with a Windows XP LiveCD (Hiren Boot) and execute the WDIDLE3
from here (http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=609&sid=113&lang=en)
and this what I get:

WDIDLE3 Version 1.05
Copyright (C) 2005-2009 Western Digital Corp.
Configure Idle3.
CauseWay DOS Extender v3.49 Copyright 1992-99 Michael Devore.

Writing CW.ERR file....

CauseWay error 09 : Unrecoverable exception. Program terminated.

This is the error log: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1541853/CW.ERR

I try to plug the drive with a USB-SATA adapter to a netbook and has
the same error.

I am doing something wrong?

I just want to put the hard-drive on standby mode when is not used.

Thanks for all your help, best regards.
