    I have an Android TV box with USB connectors (not OTG). How can I explore the directories and files on the connected USB sticks and harddisks? Programs like ES File Explorer can do this.

    Thank you for this link. However, it does not enable me to explore an external hard disk that is connected to the USB on an Android TV box. What I need is code to access the folders and files on an external USB drive, just like with an external microSD card.

    How does ES File Explorer assign addresses to these drives? It's probably as a sub-folder of /mnt/. You should be able to access them the same way.

    It works with the File Explorer library made by Informatix!
