Put your picture in spoiler, please.
I'm strongly advise you to use an additional power source at 5V and at least 2A!!! with the same cable

I'll try to connect my 4 Tb drive via USB and will report here some time later.

P.S. If you have usb 2.0 Y cable with your disk use this one.

Thanks for your test. Good to know that it fails on USB. I don't have a Y-cable. Do you also use a Y-cable for your test?

I think I understand that this Seagate 5TB in its original form has no chance on the O!play. :-(

As said, virtual, I don't like to open the box due to guaranty.

It may be time for a new play. H.265 and 2160p are also nice things. Someone can recommend one mediabox like O!play? Small, smart, fast and simple to use?

I don't know about pleers with H.265 and it's not topic of this forum.
If you want to change your pleer see this one - Iconbit HDS73D. It has usb3 and esata.

I found now a solution with NAS. Not the best, but better than nothing.

thanks again for all the helps!
