I purchased an external 500gb Samsung SSD to use as a “master archive” of my music with the idea I’d keep sets for shows on a USB stick, and then have this drive to pull oddball requests off of in a bind.
When attempting to set it up I noticed something a little odd - in the desktop software this drive does not show up under the devices tab, and instead shows up only under the file system browser tab as if it is a locally installed drive in the computer.
Because of this I am not able to drop playlists or crates onto it. So two questions:
- Is there an option or workaround to get this drive to show up where it should be?
- I’ve noticed the local drives use a bit of a different database system than the external devices. If I set this drive up as a “local” drive, will the players be able to see it and read it properly?
