Try using an AC power adapter on it.
I have a portable hard driver that I got a couple of years ago. It has recently been powering up and down randomly. What could be causing this?
I connect via USB and have a cord that has the second USB plug to provide power. I use both.
This issue is annoying and worries me. I don't want to loose data, and when I have it plugged in, about every 2 minutes or so it powers down and then immediate powers back up causing the auto read to happen. It interrupts the work flow.
any help or suggestions would be great.
