I have a M919V wind model running stock 4.4.2 is it safe to downgrade to 4.3 so I can get the full use out of my SD Card?

You will not be able to downgrade.
It will softbrick and you would need to flash back to that version to fix it.
If you are rooted you can re-renable sd card access.
There is even an app in the play store that can do it for you if you are rooted.

Thanks for your reply
Yes I can re-root I had it rooted but I put it back to stock to sell it and go back to my Grand Duos just because of the issue with SD Card access.
I will take a look on Google Play for this info.
I would rather do it myself, do you have a link to any pages that can help me?
I found it!

You can either root it and use a custom recovery to flash a custom 4.3 Rom, or use nextapp as card fix from the play store if you prefer to stay on stock 4.4.2. To get back permission to write on the external card you will have to have root access.
