Trouble with old Pi...

Using an exfat filesystem could be your issue. Using a native Linux filesystem or a natively supported Windows filesystem like fat32 should work out of the box. You should be able to install the driver and tools for exfat using apt in a ssh session.
e.g.
   
Code:
sudo apt install exfat-fuse exfat-utils

I guess that'd be enough and udisks should be able to auto mount the filesystem so long as your USB hard disk has enough power to spin up.
Older Pis before the Pi2 aren't able to power a spinning hard disk from their USB ports so if your HDD isn't spinning up at all when you plug it in, use a powered USB hub in between the Pi and the HDD.
