WD WP Pro and Macbook Air M1

Hi

I’m having trouble connecting my new MacBook Air M1 to my WD Wireless Passport Pro 2TB. I connect it with an original USB-A to USB-C adapter, but the hard drive does not appear on the screen, it just starts charging, just like if I had put it to a charger.

I thought I had tried everything. I’ve formatted the hard drive, I’ve tried various adapters, and I’ve also looked for it in Disk Utility, but it does not appear.

Is there anyone who has experienced the same, and who possibly. have a fix?

Thanks in advance
Fred
