Mechanical drives are need more power and are much more sensitive to mechanical vibration which happens in a live situation. I’ve tested some of my older mechanical drives which take more than the allowed 500mA from the USB port and they worked, so it is not necessarily a power problem. It also may be a protocol issue, since some USB sticks do also fail to even enumerate.
Just take a Extreme stick and you’re fine.
