Plex not recognizing an external HDD?

jaydoukenjaydouken Members Posts: 5 Plex Pass

I'm currently running plex on Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 and trying to use an external HDD as media storage. However, plex can not see any of the folders in the actual drive when creating a library, only the drive. When I specify manually which directory to point to the library scans come up empty. I've already tried the top solutions in the following threads:


The hard drive I'm using is NTFS and produced by Seagate.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
