    i run the performance tune-up wizard on sisoftware sandra and it says i have acoustic management mode enabled on my hard disk im assuming to control the noise it makes
    it says i have it enabled and that performance is impaired obviously i want best performance so can someone tell me how to disable it im looking on the seagate website now and i posted it here to see if anyone knew.

    hard disks are:
    seagate 5400rpm st304810a
    seagate 7200rpm st360021a

    go to page 42. it shows 2 options: "performance seek" and "quiet acoustic seek".

    but, as to how to change this value, i haven't the slightest idea. i looked and looked on seagate's site and can't find anything. you can try downloading their seatools program and see if that gives you any control.
