Can't access external drive

I can access my iMac with the Media program and My Files shows the folders in my Home folder–but it’s not indicating that I have external drives attached (which is where my media is).

Thanks

I am looking for this answer as well, have you been able to figure it out?

On the Mac, you must share the folders you want to access in the Firecore Media Player (your home folder is shared already it seems). It does not matter if the folder is on an external drive or not. Just go to System settings -> Sharing (or similar).

 

Thanks for your answer but I have gone to System Preferences>Files Sharing and have added my external hard drive to the Shared Folders but it doesn’t show up. Any thoughts?

What format is the drive?    I have seen other posts that suggest it needs to be in Apple format for it to be seen via Mac sharing…

I have tried with both, a FAT formatted drive and a Mac Extended Journaled drive, none of them show up
