here's my problem: I have an old 500GB HDD drive from one of my old laptops which I connected to my Pi via USB. First issue: Every time I plug in the device, the Pi reboots. I already read this is due to some issue with the power supply and it's not really bothering me since I inteded to leave the HDD connected to the Pi anyways. BUT
Second issue: The HDD refuses to show up in /dev, therefore I can't mount it! It works perfectly fine on my desktop PC (where I also formatted it with ext4) but it won't work at all on the Pi.
Maybe those to issues are somehow connected to each other?! Help very welcome...
Filesystems on the pi are:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/mmcblk0p1 4096 147455 71680 c W95 FAT32 (LBA) /dev/mmcblk0p2 151552 31504383 15676416 83 Linux
output of lsusb is
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9512 Standard Microsystems Corp. Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp.
output of lsblk is

Formatting the external HDD with FAT32 doesn't work either
