Increase USB power for Raspberry Pi 2 Model B

Increase USB power for Raspberry Pi 2 Model B

I recently bought the Raspberry Pi 2 model B with a Western Digital Elements 1TB harddisk. When I booted the Pi, the USB harddisk makes tiny “clicks” and it seems the harddisk is not getting enough power so I needed to increase the power provided from the USB port.

The network is reached by a USB wifi dongle which also consumed some power. In order to provide enough power to the USB peripherals I bought a 2A power supply. The Pi is going to serve as a media center so I installed the OpenElec image.
