Can someone please help me understand what's going on please????

I have the Kontakt app downloaded to my mac drive and all my content was uploaded to an external ssd.

When I boot up the app in stand alone. All the instruments show up fine no problem. When I boot up the plug in in logic pro all the libraries appear as "Browze" instead of "instruments" and none of the nki files pop up. Did I do something wrong? I can't find any answers that address this issue. I'm very new to all this Please Help!!! 🙏

    First check to make sure the version of the Plugin Matches the Version of Standalone. Mismatches can cause this behavior. If that is the case, try reinstalling Kontakt and opening in Standalone prior to opening as a plugin.

    I check to make sure and I do have the same version on both. I did some more digging and found out that if I download some libraries to my mac's drive instead of the external drive, logic is able to play them. So I guess now my question is: How do I get Logic to look for sound Libraries located in an external hard drive?

    Does setting a Full Disk Access do the trick?
