I am trying to use PowerDirector (8.0.0) on my Pixelbook Go. The app installs fine, I can create a project no problem. But when I go to add media, only the Stock Video/Photo and capture options work. Clicking on local or Google Drive folders does exactly nothing. There are images and videos there; I can view them from elsewhere no problem; my permissions are set to allow access to storage for the app. I've reinstalled the app, but same deal: can't add video or photos to my project.

For Google Drive, I know you have to have already signed in from within the PD Mobile app before any content will show up. You can also try the Refresh button:



On my main screen, I have several folders available from other apps



I don't know how to tell PDM to search for more folders, but you can try uninstalling/reinstalling and also open up other apps and maybe download or save some content with them and see if PDM becomes aware of the new content.

Even Color Board doesn't do anything when I click it.

Then something is seriously amiss. If uninstalling/rebooting/reinstalling doesn't change anything, you should submit a request for help to Cyberlink tech support from this page.

In the end I was able to resolve this by explicitly granting access to my Google account for the PDM app.

I've attached a screenshot of the resulting security alert I got on my phone.

Why PDM didn't ask, and why it showed thumbnails of the folders etc. without this access I cannot say.

Thanks for your help!

Turns out it was due to a different problem: a second monitor I had plugged into my machine via USB-C to HDMI adapter. Once I unplugged the monitor, files and folders read no problem.
