So I can't set the path manually.

If you can tell me what I need to do manually to fix this I'd be happy to try it.

New log attached

/sdcard basically link to /storage/emulated/0. when MX Player tries to access the directory you have mentioned, it receives cross-device link error. You can see the following lines on the logs.

Code:
E *MX.Directory: Can't open directory '/storage/emulated/0/usbStorage/128GB'. errno=18
Can you access the same location through a file manager without root?

@Ch3vr0n

We have checked from our end. It seems to be an issue with Stick Mount itself.

That last log afaik is from WITHOUT stickmount, and it doesn't work either. FX explorer can access the drive and the content itself via partition ID but not through volume label. Drive shows up as 7E53-xxxx or something.

At least from the home screen. I'll have to check if a shortcut works

I havent been able to do that test yet, @Thirumalai.K but do you have any alternative to Stickmount that works on O and with nfts support? I can't find one.
