    If your HDD is not self-powered, and you run it directly into the USB port as I do, then I recommend powering it separately via a Y-cable and isolating it from RPi power.

    If you are happy with it fine. Just saying I found a significant improvement when I powered it separately. Assuming you have a USB 3.0 drive it might be worth trying one of these and adding a separate USB power supply.

    I use a SSD attached via a PiHut USB hub and power it separately. Designed for the Pi and doesn't ''back power'' the Pi. Works for me.

    That's another way of doing it. Actually, you can achieve this with most hubs by using a data only USB cable or modifying an existing one by cutting the 5v power cable (typically red in colour). Can be pretty messy though stripping back the insulation and screen! This allows data transfer but not power transfer

    I have chosen the Volumio option with my Digione Player (due any day now)- does anyone know whether I'm going to be able to access Deezer or Spotify with this?
