i have tried several roms, sd fix apps, and have modified the platform.xml manually and gave permissions to the mnt folder.
Nothing lets me write to my 64gb card anymore.
I've tried formatting the card via phone and pc disk management and several format exFAT utilities.
Nothing works.

Is my sd card screwed?

Go in to system etc then platform and make sure it looks like this


<permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
<group gid="sdcard_r" />
<group gid="sdcard_rw" />
<group gid="media_rw" />
</permission>

I had that same issue and it is a simple fix, at least for me. I was embarrassed to know what it was. Anyways. On the SD card adapter you use to insert into the PC is a lock slide knob like mechanism. If you locked it then you will have your issues. Put it back in that adapter and slide it the other way. At least it worked for me after weeks of research.

If you try to format and it says successful but all your original files are still there, there's a good chance the card is corrupt. This happened to me recently. I was still able to read the files so I backed the card up and had it replaced through SanDisk warranty.
