I had an issue with my Seagate Goflex 3TB not being recognized by the WNDR4500, having formatted it a couple of different ways (NTFS and also Journal for Mac), but after formatting to FAT32 (and in my case portioning into two drives), the router detected it again.
Again, if you don't mind, please post back to confirm whether or not that works as it might help others.

Good tip, but I just double-checked the partition of the My Passport 1.5TB drive and it's MBR and set to Primary Active.
