Default external hard drive problem

so I've got an external hard drive I use to watch films on my ps3, thing is it keeps turning the film off half way through and going to the main menu, anyone know anything I can do or any reasons why this is happening?

Strange, I also watch movies/episodes via a USB HDD (60GB my old phat drive lol), I've never had it power down half way through a movie. It sounds like a power issue with the PS3.

Does the HDD run constantly when plugged into a PC?

Is the external hdd USB powered or does it have its own A/C adapter? If it's USB powered it might not be getting enough power from the PS3 to run.
