Using a external HDD "The path could not be found. Please ensure the path is valid and try again."

I´m using Raspberry pi 4 B with Raspbian with a Samsung external HD with 1TB.

I have installed Emby Server 4.5.0.50 and it runs well. 

But I can´t add library on external HD. I tried many ways to fill the Add Library field unsuccessfully. I tried enter the path manually or searching by the "lens" until the folder that I want. In this case:

/media/pi/10F9-2FC8

or 

/media/pi/10F9-2FC8/series

I know that I need to change the permissions of folders so:

pi@raspberrypi:/media/pi $ sudo chmod 777 10F9-2FC8/
pi@raspberrypi:/media/pi $ ls -l
total 64
drwxr-xr-x 7 pi pi 65536 Dec 31  1969 10F9-2FC8
 

It cannot change the "w" permission for group and all. But I think that´s not necessary because I´m using alone the server!

So when I tried to add library I get the error:

"The path could not be found. Please ensure the path is valid and try again."

Someone can help me?

Hugs!

th entire folder structure of your mount needs to be accessible by emby, so check the permissions of the entire tree.

I did:

pi@raspberrypi:/media/pi $ sudo chmod -R 777 10F9-2FC8/
pi@raspberrypi:/media/pi $ ls -l
total 64
drwxr-xr-x 7 pi pi 65536 Dec 31  1969 10F9-2FC8
 

and

pi@raspberrypi:/media/pi/10F9-2FC8 $ sudo chmod -R 777 series/

and the error persists.

Have you made the emby user a member of the pi group?

sudo usermod -a -G pi emby
