Recommended Posts

Would someone kindly tell me how to permanently disable the alarm in the Cool Drive 4? What wire or pin to snip.

Thanks,

Michael

As far as I know it can't be done... Someone please feel to correct me if I'm wrong though.

sorry

"...void the warranty..." Good point well taken. An oversight on my part to not have included in the original posting that its OK, I assume disabling the alarm will void the warranty. See, I set the computer to go on Standby after a certain period of time; it's easy on the hardware, it's ecologically the right thing to do. Then I do timed backups at 2am. Which awakens the machine from Standby which causes the CD4 alarm to go off, which awakens me at a time I did not plan.

This failure of the design team to think through the above scenario I find a stunning oversight. Yes, it is solved by the CD6 - get out the checkbook again. If I cannot quiet the CD4 it's destined for the trash can anyway.

Thanks,

Michael
