BT HH5 and connecting a USB HDD - disconnects the wireless

I thought I might try connecting my G-Drive 1TB USB hdd to my new HH5 - no such luck.  Whenever I try to connect it the hub wireless connection drops totally and I end up with first the flashing green light, then the steady orange light.   Before the wireless drops, the USB shows up as connected in the HH5 interface in my browser.  If I then unplug the usb hdd the wireless fires up again on the HH5.  

 

Any ideas or is yet another example of how bad the USB port on the HH5 is?

This is just speculation but if the drive is powered through the USB port instead of having its own power supply it may be that it draws too much power for the HH5 to cope.
