I recently purchased a WD My Passport Ultra 1.5 TB. I Tried plugging it in to my Acer 11 Chromebook (2GB RAM, Intel Celeron) and it said it couldn’t recognize and needed to reformat. After trying to reformat it said an error occurred. I have contacted Google support, but they just took me through basic troubleshooting (power cycling and the such).
I reformatted the drive to both FAT32 and NFTS and tried connecting to my computer then with no luck. According to google, ChromeOS is compatible with both FAT32 and NFTS.

tl;dr: Is the WD My Passport Ultra 1.5 TB compatible with ChromeOS, specifically the Acer 11 inch Chromebook.
Thanks for any help!
