You are repeating prior trials.

If you read prior questions you discover your average Smart TV may not support USB 3.0 or such a large drive.
Forgive me but it's sad to read when folk exclaim "but USB 3.0 is backwards compatible." Sure, you tell that to the device that didn't work. You also have the second issue of a drive size that didn't exist when the folk that wrote the code were chiseling out the work.
When I want this to work I get a boring old 500GB USB 2.0 drive. That way I only have to deal with video encoding issues.
