Conecting My Passport with my DVD Player


I have had a previous WD My Passport the older version and i was able to load my dvds, music and photos onto it and conect it with my DVD player to watch them. I recently bought the newer model My Passport Essential and i can not do it with this one. It comes up on my TV “MUSIC, MOVIES,PHOTOS” so it is conecting but im not able to click on anything. 

Can someone please help me with this???
