Doesn't work RB DJ in that way that it will recognize only tracks which has been imported earlier? I think you can not just plug in a new USB stick and play tracks from it like in Traktor or Serato or any other DJ software. The RB DJ sofware has no regular file explorer included so you have to explicit import everything before. At least this is my understanding from my trail and error with RB in the last days and I'am not very glad about this.

The point is to have an Explorer inside rekordbox that can see everything that sees the comouter's Explorer even if it is a mac or Windows laptop. I have baught a ddj rz and i can't use it because of this problem.

@giannis > No, export USB devices are not intended to be used in PERFORMANCE mode because the database is not meant for internal use. If you happen to use an external device (USB drive) as a music source, all that music should exist within your collection and then it's a non-issue.

Yes but this way is wrong... Many many djs use their external devices and the new laptops use ssds and the storage is very few. every dj program has an explorer which can see what laptops explorer can see. This isn't happening in rekordbox. I have 1 TB of music in my external drive completely useless with rekordbox. if you play one kind of music it is easy with little storage to do the job but as you see we are many djs that we need a whole discography to play in some bars and clubs. please do something for it because I have 2,000$ sitting and waiting for solution at the moment. I think it's not a stange request. It is very common.
Thank you for understanding.
