[digiKam-users] Digikam database basic questions

I’ve installed the DigiKam .pkg file (5.9.0) on my Apple running High Sierra. When I try to choose where the database goes, all I see on the left panel of the choosing menu is Computer or my home directory - I don’t see any way to choose one of the other hard drives (USB). What am I missing?

Also, I’m trying to import a huge library of photos that was exported from iPhoto by iphoto2xmp. It will actually copy all those photos (and meta-data) into the database, which will then also become huge, right - the database doesn’t just index locations of the image files and leave them in place (links)?
