WD elements 4TB external hard disk is not working with android tv

If you need help, then you will have to provide a lot more information … people aren’t mind readers.


What Brand / Model Android TV Box do you have ?

Have you searched for anyone else with this problem on the Brand/Model Android TV Box you have ?

What format is the WD Elements ? NTFS, exFAT, FAT32, HFS etc etc

Have you tried another Hard Drive ?

Have you tried a different USB Cable or Input on the Android Box

etc etc

I’m having the same issue…I have a elements 4tb I have reformatted changed to gtp , ntfs assigned drive letter. this works fine in PC but when I plug into seagate android box or Himedia Q10 pro media box, it will not show up at all… I have a 3tb my book that works fine and shows up on both media players…I can’t figure this out…any ideas ? thx

Mine is WD My Passport(1TB) and it supports on my Laptop and it even works when i connect it to my phone with an OTG. But when i connect it to my LG Smart TV(UM73), it’s telling me i need to format it in order to see it but even after formatting it(i’ve tried it 3 or 4 times), it’s not working and keeps telling me the same thing. Idk if it’s the problem with my TV or the Hard disk because it supports other hard disks.
I haven’t put any password on it either.
If anyone knows how to fix this please let me know, thank you!
