External hard drive drops from network when TV is off???

Recently got a new desktop (Win8) and was excited to hook it up to plasma tv. Folders on external WD drive are not available when the tv is off, though! When the tv is on, the folders are accessible on the network but I get an error that basically says I don't have permission/the drive isn't ready when the tv is off. I have made/shared folders on the C drive and they work fine when the tv is off so it is the external drive that are the problem (it happens with both a WD Elements and a WD My Book)Does anyone know why this happens and how to fix it?
