My Passport 1TB is not recognized by my Linksys Router

I have a Linksys WRT1900AC router installed and I wanted to connect my WD Passport 1TB in the router, however it is not recognized in the router. However I could connect my Seagate 2 GB Hard disk successfully. I want to use this drive as my movie drive so that I can use it from any device at home. Please help

Hi there, the Passport drive that you have is designed for computer environments. Performance of the drive while plugged into a router is not guaranteed. Let’s see if another user has been able to set a external drive as a network drive and hopefully can share some information.
