Hi all!
Purchased MrMC for my shield tv and love it!

I have an external HDD that i plugged to my shield with plenty of movies and tv show's, but i dont have an access through MrMC.

So. My question is how do i get an access to my HDD?

Thanks!

You don't see your HDD listed in "Videos-Files" ?
Can you see it via, eg, X-plore (https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... lore&hl=fr) ?

I do see it in video files, but can not enter it. It says that the source have been moved or something like this. I can take a photo when i will back home.

Ok. Please also test if you can enter via X-plore.
It could be that the format of your HDD is not supported by shield (NTFS?)

I can access it via x-plore kodi and spmc. I searched in the forum and saw that storage permission isn't prompt automatically, so i will chack that issu and will updae if that was the problem.

Indeed, permissions problem, had to check the storage permission in settings of shield.

it's ok i found it :) i thought there was something in

shield settings > storage & reset

that i had to enable storage access for but it was actually under

shield settings > apps > mrmc lite > permission
