I bought a WD external 250 GB USB hard drive for my Pioneer DEH-P6000UB. It connects fine and will play fine - initially. But, after a period of time, sometimes just several minutes, sometimes 15-20 minutes, it stops playing. It's as though the head unit is no longer able to read the drive and it keeps trying and trying until I finally reach over and disconnect it. If I use a flash drive, I have no issues like this at all. This almost makes me think that my 250 GB hard drive is skipping. What are your thoughts on this issue? Thanks so much!

Re: Head unit drops connection
IT DOESNT SEEM LIKE A HARDWARE ISSUE BUT A SOFTWARE ONE .
TRY RELOADING THE "DRIVER" TO YOUR HARD DRIVE (AFTER CONNECTING IT TO YOUR COMPUTER OF COURSE)AND SEE THE DIFFERENCE.
DOES IT HAVE TOO MUCH OF DATA LOADED?GET SOME LOADED OFF.

You run MS Windows Update to download and install the latest OS updates. Your WD external HDD should be detected after OS update.
For non updates system, try to connect WD to the USB Port where it worked before. If you have 4 USB ports for instance, try to connect it to these ports one try at a time. Windows XP might have assigned one USB port for your device before when it was working just fine.
You don't say which version of Operating system you are using. My thoughts are to first go to "my computer" and see if your drive shows up there. If not, get to disk management and see if it shows up there. The crash possibly could have messed up your external drive, and now it needs to be initialized and/or formatted.
Some Head units (cd players) dont like to play burnt discs. I love pioneer (deh-p6000ub)and that is all I use for head units, and sometimes, depending on how you burn the, they wont play. Make sure to use windows media player to burn your files, that might help. If you are using regular store bought cds, then you might need a new head unit, it might be an internal problem.
Pioneer head units (decks) have a function wherein u can opt for AUX -ON / OFF.Similarly USB -ON /OFF.Why is this function given,i dont know.
To choose AUX "ON" or USB "ON" put the power OFF from the SRC SWITCH,PRESS THE MULTICONTROL ROTARY KNOB for 1-2 seconds .the display will show AUX OFF or USB OFF.Select "ON"on pressing the multicontrol knob again.
Now connect your device via the AUX or USB jack and see
i hope your problem is solved.
