    Try:

    sudo hdparm -d1 /deb/hdb

    The "sudo" command lets you run a command using the Superuser authority, otherwise known in Unix/Linux as the "root" user account.

    To open a terminal window with superuser authority, you can type:

    sudo su

    and you can even create a "root" account password with:

    sudo passwd

    are you sure ?
    why the hdb ?
    do you have a hdb ?
    most systems have an hda

    mine works with
    -d1 and
    -d 1
