USB Problems

I have Rp3 with osmc. I'm using sickrage and couchpotato for snaching torrents and downloading them with transmission to an external disk which powered by different power source.

My problem is when I watch videos system works fine but when a download starts after a while disk unmounts itself. I tried mount the external drive to mnt folder but nothing has changed.

Is there anybody having the same issues or any help?

Check your power supply.
The disk unmounting itself usually means it isn't getting enough power.

Like I said hdd supplies power from different source than rpi. And I have already tried different external disks and cables. Btw I've forgot to mention that the hdds format is exfat. Thanks for the reply though
