you need an extra power supply for your hard drive. I got the same issue with my 2,5″ hard drive. It works with an additional usb hub with a additional power supply for the hard drive. The power supply of the computer consumes all the energy already for the WLAN stick, the amplifier and the Raspberry Pi.
