On the other hand though, I have a feeling the hard drive setup has nothing to do with it, because the hard drive only draws 2 A of power, which means I would have blown that 7.5 A fuse by now because there'd still be over 8 A of current left over. The only explanation for this, is that the USB port of the hard drive draws a lot of power, so turning off the drive alleviates 2 A + whatever the USB port draws.
