Default [Q] Lost External SD card access on MIUI v5

Hi guys. Yesterday i tried installing MIUI v5 (4.8.16) on my LG-E988 in order to test battery life on it. I was able to successfully unstall the rom upon choosing F240L on the aroma installer. My concern though is that i have lost access of my external sd card-file explorer can't see it as well as the computer when the phone is plugged in. Anyone who tried MIUI and experience the same problem? I'm also searching up for solutions but if someone knows how to address the issue help is appreciated.
