Default [Q] Need some help with OTG

Hello,

I just bought a SD-Card USB reader, an active USB hub and an OTG cable. I want to copy my holiday photos from SD Card to an external USB HDD via Nexus 5 with current CM11. The HDD has 160GB. When I plug in the SD-Card USB reader directly or through the USB hub I can read, write copy files from or to it. My 160GB HDD doesn't work. I tried to format it with FAT32, exFAT or NTFS in different sizes. I used ES File Explorer. There I can see both USB devices but when I try to access the USB HDD ES File Explorer loads and loads an loads but nothing happens more...

How do I ahve to format the USB HDD to get this working? Are there any limits on size, format or even hardware?
