That suggests to me that the amount of current it's trying to pull exceeds
what the USB port is able/willing to provide.
Try an externally powered drive?
Or go through a powered USB hub - these aren't too bad. I got one that
seemed to be pretty well built, as was able to supply power to all 4 of
its ports. Cost was ~ $40 US.
