VLC wont' play video files on a connected hard drive

If I have a video file located inside the VM that I have VLC installed, I can double click the file and play the video with no issue. However, if I connect an internal hard drive to that Qube and try to double click one of the video files located on it, VLC will simply open and then immediately close. I’ve double checked and used the same video file in both instances and it’s not the file itself.

Has anyone else encountered this issue or does anybody have any idea’s on what might be causing this?

Maybe it’s a problem with file permissions on the mounted drive.
