macos with usb ssd drive

Recommended Posts

I have a music folder on a usb attached ssd drive.  My Apple music app finds it and can add it to its libraries as does plex media server.  Emby doesn't show the  drive in the add library so i put it in directly as /Volumes/Samsung_T3/Music/Music (from a terminal window a >ls /Volumes/Samsung_T3/Music/Music shows all my artist folders) and I selected to scan media folders.

But then i go to the client side and see the library but nothing is in it.

How can i get to add/play the music on the ssd usb drive?

 

Thanks

yes but it didn't do anything.

I figured it out - the server needed to be granted permission to removable media in mac preferences under security and privacy, under files and folders.  Saved and restarted the server and it works like charm!
