Just started up HW180STB box. Does not detect WD 1TB Elements Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBUZG0010BBK-WESN. It is formatted in NTFS.

I had the same problem after formatting a flash drive in windows as NTFS. Try re-labeling your NTFS volume as ' 123456789 ' (no quotes), which is the default name given when you 'format' a USB drive from within the USB menu. It works on flash with NTFS format, have not tested with an external HDD yet. I also strongly recommend backing up data on your drive before renaming it, to prevent data loss.

P.S. I don't officially represent Mediasonic, this is just a work-around that worked for me.
