Why won’t my USB 2.0 media player pick up my USB 3.0 hard drive, despite backwards compatibility?

I have a media player that is USB 2.0 compatible. My previous external hard drive used to work perfectly through the media player and recently I bought a new hard drive that uses USB 3.0. It clearly states that it is compatible with USB 2.0 devices, but the media player does not pick up my hard drive.

Why is this? Shouldn’t these work together?
