Re: [opensuse] another WD Green AV-GP HD failure [solved]

Just a thought, your device doesn't use smart on the disk but smart
settings stay across resets and power cycles. Maybe if you enable smart
via smartctl the disk might take better care of itself.

Is that not how WD ships? This is from before I actually installed it:

Note that the DVDR keeps the disk actively recording most of the time it's
powered up. Would that affect Smart being able to take care of itself?
