Nighthawk r7000p and network hard drive issues

Router: Nighthawk R7000P

Firmware: V1.3.1.64_10.1.36 

External Hard Drive 1: WD MY BOOK 1230 3Tb

Exteran Hard Drive 2: SG STGY8000400 8Tb

O.S. : Linux


I've been using my WD external-hdd with Readyshare for a long time and it works flawlessly on both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 connections. It has one ext4 GPT partition.
Recently I purchased an 8Tb Seagate external-hdd. If formatted to one ntfs GPT partition the router recognizes it quickly and Readyshare works flawlessly.


However, if I format it to ext4 and connect it to the router, the corresponding USB led won't turn on, the drive won't be recognized and I won't be able of using Readyshare.

Any clue of how can I fix this?
Thank you
