Arch not finding Seagate Expansion

After using debian for awhile, I decided to switch to Arch.
However, It couldn't see my HDD (Seagate Expansion 2tb)

After looking online, I saw it said it wasn't supported on linux, however it did work on Debian.
So I'm wondering, how can I make it work with Arch?

fdisk does not see it, nor does lsblk

Re: Arch not finding Seagate Expansion

you should have a look at the following pages: … ge_Devices

Check if one or more of the recommended packages, ntfs-3g, gvfs, or the automounting udisks wrappers is needed.

Re: Arch not finding Seagate Expansion

There is the possibility that you might have plugged it in after a kernel update and have not rebooted as well.  With Arch kernels and modules are replaced rather than multiple kernel version being kept around.  Thus when you update your kernel, the modules for the running kernel will be gone.  So if, for instance, you plug in a FAT32 USB drive and both usbcore and vfat modules are not yet loaded... you'll have to reboot so that the running kernel matches what is in /usr/lib/modules.
