When I had my media player connected through a surge protector, I can access everything as if it was working normally, but when it gets to actually playing the videos, all I see is a black screen, and after 5 seconds or so, it goes to the WD screensaver. Strange.

As soon as I take it out of the surge protector and into it's own electrical outlet, it worked fine. Whew! Ihought my hard drives (tried 2) were messed up or something. Or even worst, my player was damaged.

Can anyone tell me why this is so?
