My first thought is that it is likely a hardware problem...specifically the computer usb port you are plugging into. Test using
a different computer or a different drive to plug into the computer usb port. Of course, if there is more than one usb port,
be sure to try those, too.
Sounds like you may have all your eggs in one basket. Meaning you should consider cloning that drive since as you say it
contains many thousands of dollars worth of data.

I'm not at all familiar with that type of drive. Suggest...if you haven't already...contact the manufacturer or
perhaps they have a forum you can seek advice on.

Wireless you say....just curious...does your TV require you to plug in a wireless dongle to receive the input from the hdd? Did the hdd
come with such?

I don't know your Linux distribution, but if the drive still works, as it seems to be the case with your TV, you may have to use the lower level disk/driver tools to find out what stopped working to be able to solve it.

Hi minichef and where are our manners?
to BC and to the Linux & Unix Section, hope you enjoy your stay here..
I run an Adata Nobility NH03 (3TB) off my Toshiba Satellite. Whilst it is powered, we may find some areas of common ground, but I have not plugged mine into TV yet (will be careful now, lol).
Can you please tell us which version of Ubuntu you are running?
Or better still, go to Terminal and type in
Copy the output and paste it here.
Mine looks like this (highlighting is mine for emphasis)
