Yet to hear of any major brand ones that don't work, what have you got that doesn't.

Know people with all sorts of Verbatim's, Seagates, WD's etc and all work fine so I'd say you'd be more likely to find one that does than doesn't so I wouldn't say they were picky.

Are you plugging it into the correct USB port, think they have to be plugged into the outer one.

Have you put the drive in the bottom of the 2 USB ports? It doesn't like it if you plug into the top one. What format have you done your hard drive? It doesn't use ntfs, you can use fat32 but some games are over 4gb. Ideally you want wbfs.
