Default CM11 Can't Read\Write to External SD Card

I decided to give CM11 a go (was on GE before), the only thing that is not working is my access to my external SD card. I can see the extSdCard (and the external_sd) folder but when I open it, it is empty and when I try to create a folder, it say Operation Failed. When I use the File Manager in Recovery, everything in the extSdCard folder is there. As a bandaid solution, I am moving things from ext SD to int SD in Recovery which is a pain.

The external sd card is formatted in EXT4 which I don't think is an issue for CM11 unless I am wrong and if I am is more likely the cause of the issue. I did some research and thought maybe the SDFix app will do the trick but it doesn't. I am currently on the CM11 stock kernel.

Any recommendation on what to try next or if someone know of the fix is much appreciated.

Over 70 views and no one has any idea what else I can try? Or is the answer so obvious that it is not worth wasting other peoples time?
