Appropriate USB device HDD for Samsung TV recording?


I have a 7 Series Samsung 55" Smart TV, hoping someone can recommend an appropriate brand/model of USB HDD that i can usb connect to the TV for allshare play / tv recording etc without fear of it crashing.

I have had a WD Elements 1 TB HDD usb connected for the past week, had been able to record, playback tv shows etc, then for an unknown reason the TV no longer recognises the device at all. I have had success with a small 16GB sandisk thumb drive.
Appears WD may not be up to scratch....

Any thoughts or advice pls.....
