Can't see attached USB drive over wired network

I've a Roku Ultra that I have connected to my Xfinity gateway using an Ethernet cable. I also have a USB drive attached to my Roku. On my computer, I can see the Roku as a device on my network, but I cannot see the attached USB drive. I'd like to be able to manage files on the USB drive from my computer, while it's connected to the Roku device. How do I make the USB drive accessible over my wired network?

Thanks for the inquiry.

You will be unable to access your USB drive connected to your Roku device through you computer. However, PLEX will give you some on-device management functions that you may find useful.

Please keep us posted.


Thanks,
Danny

Thanks for your reply Danny. I'm disappointed that I can't manage the drive remotely over the network.
