Managing more external HDD in kodi for android
« on: October 25, 2017, 06:21:53 am »
Hi all,
I have movies of mine on various external hard drives. Is there a way that I can see in the movies section only the movies of a single hard drive instead of all? I am using Kodi for Android.
Many thanks
Zanzino

It can be done. There are probably a few different ways. It would also depend, somewhat, on how you added the sources (drives) to your library. So, tell us did you add all the drives to your library under one source?

Hi.. thank you for your answer.. I'll try with my poor english to say you the step I do.
I can follow two paths to add my movies
1) VIDEOS = Under categories I select FILES = HDD1 = SET CONTENT
2) VIDEOS = Under media sources, I select HDD1 = Directory where I've put my files = SET CONTENT

At the end of scraping I remove HHD, reconnect HHD2 and repeat earlier passages

In MOVIES I'll find all the movies of the two HDD but I want to see only those content in the HDD connected. How can I do?

I think

You need to leave both drives connected at least while using Kodi
It appears, from your info, you are adding both drives to one source in your library.
You should read this> http://kodi.wiki/view/Adding_video_sources

When adding these drives as sources add them separately and give each source a different name not as one source for both drives with one name.
 If you are new to using Kodi this is going to get difficult to explain....once you have completed this.

Don't worry about it all showing up in one big list.

Are you using the default Kodi skin? If not what skin are you using?

I've more than two HDDs. I think I'll try to make a profile for each HDD
