    That's doesn't look like the "open file" dialog. That's looks like the file manager file manager ("Files", formerly known as "Nautilus") and the drive is either in "Other..." or it isn't properly recognized. Or you need to - as I told you before - start at Other... > Computer and drill down to find /media and inside it a folder with your username and inside that the automatically mounted external medias.

    many unpredictable bug's show up with people installing brave using snap, from the ubuntu software application.
    Remove the snap if you want a better usage experience.
    Code:
    sudo snap remove brave
    Re-install with Apt:
    Code:
    sudo apt install brave
    If your concerned about sandboxing, install firejail:
    Code:
    sudo apt install firejail firetools
    and to run it simply run:
    Code:
    firejail brave
    You should now have access to external drive/s.

    Doubt you'll can do it as simply as that, the deb package is not in the default repositories. Only the snap package. One would need to get the .deb package from somewhere first

    Indeed, from their website only.

    And, again, NOT the problem here

    Can you help me test that theory?
    Even the Brave developer's hate it when they learn it was installed via Snap.

    Thanks for that, I'm not on Ubuntu today.
    Install from direct:
    Code:
    sudo apt install apt-transport-https curl gnupg
    Code:
    curl -s https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-core.asc | sudo apt-key --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/brave-browser-release.gpg add -
    Code:
    echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    install:
    Code:
    sudo apt install brave-browser

    Sorry, I don't have Brave installed in this computer and I don't intend to.
    But clearly this has nothing to do with snap limitations. Again, even without the specific permission to access mass storage devices all appear in the dialog.
    The issue here is the OP still don't understand that they need to go to /media to find it... That's all.

    Nice instructions but that will only result in more frustration as it changes nothing about the open file dialog, as explained before, twice!

    I see his open file dialog>>>>See Screenshot.
    OP's only option will be the "Download" Folder period. (That's the way it works with a sand box)
    I'm really not trying to be augmentative, just accurate.
