I have a portable hard drive attached to my raspberry pi. At intermittent times, when writing and drawing the most power, it will suddenly fall off the system. Every error I have found related to it is power problems. The PSU seems to be fine, the specs are:
INPUT: 100-240V ~ 50/60Hz 0.5A
OUTPUT: +5.1V - 2.5A
It seems to be specially designed for raspberry pi, it has a raspberry pi symbol on the front.
I saw the config.txt option
Code: Select all
I've got a few questions about this option:
1. Is there any chance it could fry my pi/a port/my external hard drive?
2. Is it reversible?
3. Are there any cautionary actions I should take?
4. Any other caveats?
