I bought this portable hard drive to use with Vero 4K - USB 3.0, 2.5-inch, 4TB. The drive is connected to the Vero directly. Most of the time the Vero plays content from the drive fine, but when browsing directories, OSMC often times out. What’s worse is that the hard drive makes loud clicking sounds when OSMC attempts to browse its directories and sometimes even during scrolling the movie library.
This is not the same clicking sound that hard drives make when they begin to die. The drive works fine and is super quiet when connected to different PCs. It simply feels like the drive is not getting enough power from the Vero and is failing to spin up sufficiently during browse commands.
Is this a known issue? If yes, is it addressable via firmware or software? Are there plans to address it?
