I'm wondering if MMA has trouble seeing the drive because the external drive is a 1T drive and is NTFS formatted. Could this be the issue?

Thanks, but it isn't. Folders only show me "internal storage" and "external storage SD card". It does not show me the external drive.

It should be available through Folders from the MMA home screen.

Connect MM to external drive

Couldn't find anything on this (maybe I didn't look hard enough).

I connected my Samsung Note 4 to an external drive containing my music library. Using ES file explorer, I can navigate to the drive and play songs using the native music player. I have a purchased MM for Android app and - try as I might! - I can't find a way to "see" the external drive and use MM to play music from it. All MM can see is internal storage and my SD card. Any ideas on how to connect MM to external storage?

Thx - Bill
