Connecting external drives for music

I am able to connect an external WD Elements hard drive to my Note 4, navigate to music folders (with ES File Explorer) on that drive and then play the music (by clicking the music file). However, music players like Mediamonkey and Music Folder Player can't see/find the external drive. After playing around with USB controllers and diagnostics a bit, I'm wondering if I have a "USB kernel" needed to get to the drive (but then why can I get to it with ES File Explorer but not the music players?) Has anyone done this, or have suggestions on what to try next?
