I use this exact model as internal system HDD in my Magic TV with no problem. The problem is most likely caused by your USB docking.
_MANY_ USB docking supports up to 2TB only. For example, I have an early version of Magic-Pro USB 3.0 docking using an old type of Fujitsu chip, it supports 2TB only but is perfectly stable. I also have another generic dual USB 3.0 docking using a JMicron chip that supports 4TB after firmware upgrade, but is not stable.
