Can I run PLEX on an Seagate Expansion drive?

VERY new to this. Apologies if this is a silly question. I have a Seagate Expansion Portable Drive - Model SRD00F1. I use it on my Samsung Smart TV. Can I use PLEX with it? Thanks.

@joeydavi - No. It’s a ‘dumb’ storage device. Plex requires a server to client configuration. The drive you reference has no server capability. I believe Samsung TVs have a Plex client, but you’d still need a server to do the work (or know someone who does and share with you)
(and welcome to Plex)

Thanks. I was given the drive so no money spent. Appreciate the response.
