I have a Huawei Accend Mate 2. I have a flash drive with a micro USB connector (as well as a USB connecter). I have music files on it. Is there a way I can get the stock music app to "see" these files? I would like to include them in playlists etc. without loading them all to the phone itself (micro SD card).
The only name is Music and it is version 4.7.16. The only way I can see the files is with ES File Explorer. If I tap a music file when I am in ES File Explorer, it will play but only after a little pop-up message saying something like connecting to 127.1.1.1 or something like that. It does not seem like the apps on my phone see the files on the USB drive.
I could but I have a bunch of playlists set up in the stock music player. I would also run into the same problem with other files like pictures and video. I expected the On The Go function would have made this a bit more seamless.
The phone does see the flash drive is there since it does power it. However, I can only access the files with ES File Explorer. Accessing them from that APP will let them play but I can not access the files without going to ES File Explorer to find them.
