Mounting a usb attached drive into UBUNTU 16.04 LTS running on a mac in Parallels in OS X 10.11.06

I have a disk that  is formatted with an EX4  Linux file system on a 2 TB Seagate hard drive connected to my Mac with a USB bridge. I need info off of that disk, so on my mac I installed parallels and Ubuntu 16.04. LTS.  In Parallels preferences, under Devices, the USB / ATA/ATAPI bridge is connected to Ubuntu Linux.  I have another USB external disk formatted NTFS connected where file system can successfully see in the Files Application.


The problem is that I cannot see the usb bridge connected seagate 2 TB disk listed in the File application.  Do I need to mount it?  How can I make this visible?

Thanks!

Good point!
Another alternative is to use a powered USB hub.
(Always assuming that the 2TB drive is USB-powered)
