Did you create the init script. "/etc/init.d/ums"
If so, you should be starting it using that script.
EG:
/etc/init.d/ums start
/etc/init.d/ums stop
/etc/init.d/ums restart

If you can't access the GUI you can add:

folders = /media/odroid/Transcend

to UMS.conf

You can also have more than one folder.
This is mine in Linux:
folders = /home/media_mnt/Images, /home/media_mnt/Music, /home/media_mnt/Music Videos, /home/media_mnt/Videos
So when you bring up UMS, you get a choice which one you want to go into from the start instead of going down the folder tree.

So if your drive was at: /media/odroid/Transcend
You might have something like:
folders = /media/odroid/Transcend/Images, /media/odroid/Transcend/Music, /media/odroid/Transcend/Music Videos, /media/odroid/Transcend/Videos
