My drive is 250GB and it works fine. I never have a cable hooked into it. Yours isn't too big.

Does it actually have pins in the network port? Does it have a phone port as well? If the answer to those questions is no, you may have unfortunately gotten a counterfeit NA. I was under the impression that even the counterfeit NAs tended to work for HDD use but I don't know as mine is authentic.
