USB hard drive on OTG not mounted in Arch Linux

I am trying to mount a USB hard drive (Seagate Backup Plus) via the USB OTG port of my Wandboard on Arch Linux ARM. When I plug in the drive the pilot light flashes several times and Arch Linux finds the device, but finds it as a USB hub:

[ 1912.431400] ci_hdrc ci_hdrc.0: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
[ 1912.452800] ci_hdrc ci_hdrc.0: USB 2.0 started, EHCI 1.00
[ 1912.458503] usb usb1: New USB device found, idVendor=1d6b, idProduct=0002, bcdDevice= 5.08
[ 1912.466803] usb usb1: New USB device strings: Mfr=3, Product=2, SerialNumber=1
[ 1912.474060] usb usb1: Product: EHCI Host Controller
[ 1912.478967] usb usb1: Manufacturer: Linux 5.8.7-1-ARCH ehci_hcd
[ 1912.484916] usb usb1: SerialNumber: ci_hdrc.0
[ 1912.489891] hub 1-0:1.0: USB hub found
[ 1912.493807] hub 1-0:1.0: 1 port detected

Is there a way I can have Linux recognize the HDD as a block device so that I can then mount it?

I would be happy to supply any further information.
