USing an External 4TB USB HDD without and External Power Cord

Discussion in 'ZIDOO X8' started by Shahrokh Hafizi, Feb 20, 2019.

  1. Can I use a 4TB external HDD (WD/My Passport) on X8 or should I use an HDD which has an external power cord?

    WD/My Passport doesn't have a power cord, so it gets its power from X8.

    Zidoo players typically deliver adequate USB power (500 mA for USB2 and 800 mA for USB3). So any 2.5 inch USB drive should work normally above all where using USB3.

    Got myself also a Dinobot U5 mini which is very shy on USB power which won´t work for sure without external power (a powered USB3 hub is highly recommended with it).
