I had this problem, and although I never fixed it, the ONLY thing I could think of that caused this issue was the file system.
Please feel free to correct me anyone, bit I THINK Android only works with a Fat32 system, and if the external drive is NTFS, then Android won't be able to see it.
Of course I could be COMPLETELY wrong.
I've no fat32 external drive to test my theory.
