Connect external dvd to wd tv live

I have a wd tv live (gen3) but when I connect my external DVD usb port it is not recognized.
I’ve done the same link in a friend’s house who has the xtremader sidewinder and it worked perfectly.
Does the Xtreamer is superior to wd tv? It is possible that the wd tv live can come to recognize external dvd?

Guess is not compatible. :confounded:
