Connect My Book 8TB to netgear wireless router via USB

I am trying to connect my new MY BOOK 8TB WDBBG08HBK-NESN to my NETGEAR EX6200 using the USB 3.0 connection. I can not see the drive at all. Is there anyway I can? It is a new drive so I am ok with reformatting it etc.


Best to check with NETGEAR support to see what File System Format, Maximum Capacity and Partition Table (MBR/GPT) is supported on your Router.

USB Hard drive support on Routers are pretty limited compared to PC Hardware/Software Operating Systems.
