I'm running Omni rom (infected version) 4.4.2 and it does read the micro sd card.

May I know which other Kitkat roms have you tried already?

SlimKat can access external SD too.. I think it's not the ROM problem?

Try other microSD card and test if it doesn't work too. Can You see her in CWM? (via mount and maybe Aroma Filemanager). I had similar problem with 32GB card - too much data I deleted ~3GB and after that it works..

Sometimes it's an unlucky combination of various factors, so ext is not read by the OS and eventually maybe not even through custom recovery, but SlimBean KitKat beta can read and write it just fine (tested and it's working).

Edit:
Speaking of the devil... my SanDisk just refused to function... will get it substed as soon as the holidays are over, still nothing to do with KitKat or any other Android OS, it's a faulty card IMO.
