Easier music playlist making or importing
I'm looking at permissions on drive, and as far as I can tell all permissions for folders/subfolders and tracks are set for  "everyone" to "Read only".

Just Great! After posting in this thread all week, now my post thread has disappeared and all the comments by black_eagel are gone.

Where's the Kodi team? I've gotten no help with this issue.

Those path subs you have posted point to an smb server, not an external drive.  The two things are completely different.

Here's a suggestion for you.  As you have added the drive as a source and can already play music from it, drop your path subs for the moment from your advancedsettings file.  Make one playlist with Kodi that uses some music from the drive. Save it.  Verify it plays. Open it in some text editor and see what the paths are.  Either create some path subs to remap directories based on those paths you see, or edit your playlists to ...
