Hi, I have five 2 TB Western Digital Elements External Drives and 2 My Book external drives. I have a Western Digital TV Live Media Player and I would like to plug 6 of my drives into the Media player at the same time but I was concerend that they would use a lot of power. How much power does one 2 TB Western Digital Elements Drive use? How much power would six 2 TB External Hard Drives plugged in to the power outlet at the same time use. Do they use alot of power?

I appreciate the help. Is it then best best to power them down when not in use? These externals will be plugged into a USB Hub hooked up to a WD TV Live Media Player.
