Just guessing, but I think the a2 can't provide sufficient power to the hard drive. Have you tried a flash drive with the same format (NTFS, FAT32, etc.) to see if OTG works correctly?

Probably ur external hdd is in NTFS... Wich geenrally cant be read by most ohones due to the lack of something in the kernel. But the s7 being samsung probably has it.

I remember using custom kernel on the OPO that enabled read of ntfs drives

Buddy es explorer can open even ntfs drives
My older model of 1tb is connecting to my mi a2 that is on ntfs
