Before I start, I'd like to apologize if I'm using this board a wrong way (if I'm maybe posting this thread in a wrong section or something, or if there already is a similar thread ), I'm new here, and as my username says, I'm quite confused... I'm a student in training for my first potential job, which involves programming Android applications, and I haven't learned very much so far, which is why I need a little help now...

My first task is to make an External Storage Media Player app. I'm working with Android Studio, and using Nexus 5 API 22 x86 emulator for testing the app. Now, what I need to know is, if I actually have a USB device plugged in the computer, how can I access its file system from this emulator? I mean, as it's plugged in the computer, not in the emulator, how can it be accessed?

Thank you in advance for helping me, and please don't laugh at me if I'm asking noob questions, I actually am pretty much of a beginner at this...
