Question [Q] 3rd Party File Manager and External Memory Card

I've tried a 16GB and 64GB Sandisk Memory card in the LG G3 and I can write to the cards using the built in manager, but unable to do so using a 3rd party file manager like ES File Explorer or HD File Manager. The apps work direct to the internal SD Card so would expect to be able to use to external card as well

anyone else having similar issues as don't want to have to transfer files over wifi using ES to internal card then over to external card using the built in app

Either you root and USe SDFix, or use the Standard-Filemanager preinstalled on your phone or ES Filemanager from Playstore (I think it's the only 3rd party app that can write on external sd card under KitKat).
As it was mentioned before, it's an android "feature" and not a bug!
