LaunchBox can't see external storage on android 12

Hi!
I'm using LaunchBox on my Raspberry Pi 4 with Android 12 (LineageOS), and it's working very well, I installed and licensed LaunchBox, copied several roms to a flash drive, but when importing the games to the frontend, it only sees the internal memory of android, does not give any option to access the usb pendrive.
File managers access external storage with no problems.. has anyone experienced this? is it a known issue with that version of launchbox?

Some details of my setup:
- Raspberry Pi 4, 4GB ram;
- LineageOS 19.0 (android 12) from Konstakang;
- Android installed on the memory card;
- Game files on a USB3 flash drive;

OBS: I formatted the flash drive that was in ExFat on android to see if it could see, but nothing changed.

@marcoabm Please try the latest beta. You can update to the betas by checking the box to update to betas in Options. The latest beta should solve this issue.

I've updated to the latest beta but I'm still having this problem. I'm using anS22 ultra with a USB media hub and a USB flash drive. My file manager can see the files but the drive isn't visible in the Import setup of launchbox.

The issue is definitely specific to using an external hub and/or flash drive for the storage. I'll see if there's anything I can do to support it, but unfortunately Android has been a complete failure in that regard recently, so I may or may not be able to support it properly.

Just spent 2 hours attempting to get USB devices working, but unfortunately I did not have success. Google has screwed the pooch once again and at this point I'm not convinced that it's possible to launch ROMs in an emulator from a frontend over a USB device on Android 11 and 12. More details are posted here:
