I recently purchased a My Book for Mac 2TB External HDD, and an issue I have been having is that while I am watching Netflix the screen will suddenly go black. A message on screen says that the USB Hard Drive has been disconnected and that I must turn off the console.
The issue here is that the HDD was *not* disconnected. It was simply not being used for an extended period. At first I was a little puzzled and worried that I'd have to contact Nintendo about a faulty Wii U, but after thinking for a bit I am hypothesizing the issue lies with the HDD itself, perhaps in a "sleep mode" that could be initiated when it is not in active use.
Does anyone know that this is indeed the case? Has anyone else experienced this issue?
Any attempt at help is much appreciated. Thank you.
