Does not appear to be NTFS:
Code:
/dev/disk1 (external, physical):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:     Apple_partition_scheme                        *1.0 TB     disk1
   1:        Apple_partition_map                         129.0 KB   disk1s1
   2:            Apple_UNIX_SVR2                         1.0 TB     disk1s2

You might want to verify the partition scheme used (something sure seems strange).
Maybe you should repartition as GPT+NTFS (keep in mind macOS has no ability to write to NTFS volumes).

But your problem might be due to your USB configuration being completely wrong.
See guide(s) for correct USB procedures:

Marked solved.

Note: You will still want to fix your broken USB setup.
