Iīve just installed Windows 7 on my laptop, before of it I had XP. In XP when I saffetly remove my hard disks after a while (5 seconds aprox) it turned off, i.e. it just didnīt vibrate more and as I think it means that it stoped to take energy from the laptop. My external HD use just one usb for data and energy. I post this thread because when I saffetly remove the same external HD in Windows 7, after it says that it is possible to disconnect it the HD remains vibrating, i.e. taking energy from the laptop issue that worry me because I feel that if I disconnect it in this way I will damage it.
Please tell me what could I do to fix it.
Excuses for my english hope you could help me.
Thanks for your attention,
