power USB HDD Retropie

Hello! Thank you for the portage of Retropie on the Potato.
It's really good work! Thank you.

I could install it on EMMC without problem. However I have a problem, I can't connect my external hard drive to it. When plugged in it "slams" and doesn't work.
The hard drive (Toshiba - 2.5 "- 1TB - NTFS) works great on the Raspberry Pi and on PC.

I use power the Potato with a 5V 3A socket and the hard drive with a Y-cable (2 USB ports)

Would you have a solution?
Thank you in advance.
