    1. use Ycable, or externally powered HDD.
    2. try to set IOS58 as default IOS when inside the loader :

    settings > loader settings > Loader's IOS : replace 249 with 58

    I am having the exact same issue and tried this without success. I am using a 1 TB WD My Passport Ultra with a Y cable for power and I'm on USB Loader GX v3.0 Rev. 162.2. If I unplug the drive and wait to plug it in when the countdown begins then it works fine, but it's a pain to do every time I want to launch the loader.

    Turn off any hardware encryption or power management features of the drive with the utility that comes with it.

    I used WD drive utility to disable sleep mode and this was the only option I was able to configure. I also updated the firmware of my drive and the problem still persists.
