How about option to browse and select Music, Movies and Picture folder from usb storage instead, rather than the sdcard which gets filled out pretty quickly

The problem is to detect what's externally mounted in a reliable way that's also compatible with 4.x Android.

That is impossible to do with android 4.x, I remember that all apps that needed access to the external SD card had a big Banner that said "Due to limitations on android 4.x their app could not access external SD card UNLESS you had a rooted device and make that app a system app". So you will never be able to add access to what's externally mounted on "Android Jelly bean", This issue/permission to external storage was fix on Lollipop and above.
