USB HDD Spindown when using Flash Drive and HDD

    Quick question, I'm considering adding my WD PASSPORT 500GB drive to my RT-N16, while it already has a 8GB flash drive.

    I understand that using HDD means that the HDD Spindown setting should be turned on but what effect would/does it have on a flash drive.

    Is there a way to enable spindown for just one USB device or is it a universal setting?

    Thanks

    Maybe no. I have mounted 2 usb harddisk on my rt-56u and have enable spindown. I have tested that with 8gb flash as well, spindown enable, no issue also.

    Flash drives should simply ignore the spindown order, so it shouldn't hurt.
