Unable to Browse Hard-Drive's or Removable Media

Postby dwayne » Sun Nov 12, 2017 1:45 pm


If anyone could assist me on this issue I would extremely appreciate it.

I am using Ubuntu Studio 16.04.3 LTS and presently working with OpenShot 2.4.0 on a 4.2 gig system running a 32GB of RAM with a 128 gig SSD (primary) and 8TB (secondary) setup.

When I attempt to add files to OpenShot the option to browse my secondary hard-drive, or even any removable media, is not available. It only shows the 128gig primary drive root directory. If I open an older version of OpenShot I have absolutely no problems whatsoever browsing to my secondary drive, however, the new 2.4.0 will not let me do this. I have tried running the latest 'daily builds' but get the same issue recurring over and over. It has to be a glitch somewhere, or I apparently am not seeing the obvious for some reason. All other programs on my computer has no problem whatsoever seeing anything I have, however, OpenShot will not allow me to browse any secondary hard-drives or peripheral hard-drives attached via RAID or USB.

Any guidance on this would be greatly appreciated.
