How to add a external USB HDD in LE Kodi?

  • Hi


    Where or how shall i connect my external hdd to be able to scrape the contents into KODI?


    I had it connected to my ASUS RT-AC58U router but it seemed like it was scraping it but i couln't see it in the section for e.g music or tv-series.


    Any ideas on how to do this?

  • Hi ToddeSwe,


    I think you have to setup samba share at your router first.

    Or you plug in the hdd to your kodi device (if you have one like a raspberry).

    Thanks for the reply but while i was waiting i couln't leave it alone so i managed to work it out on my own.


    I connected the external hdd to my Asus media player with Le installed and used zeroconf-browser to find the LibreElec (SAMBA) connection and then everything worked fine.


    But i wonder now, how does SAMBA-share setup in the router work?
