1 USB hard drive does not support energy-saving mode
The FRITZ!Box cannot switch the USB hard drive to energy-saving mode because either the USB hard drive or the integrated USB controller on the hard drive housing does not support energy-saving mode. This is not an error on the part of the FRITZ!Box.
