    I believe there is an auto-power off for external HDDs turned on by default , try this .

    Then you should probably try Y-cable or external powered HDD case to see if it hits.

    Yes, always use a Y-cable for HDDs without an external power source.

    You can try with a HDD with his own supply, that has the best results....
