I think the problem is not so much a Padfone issue but a Kitkat one. Apparently Android no longer allows 3rd party apps to write to a SD card. They say this is for security reasons. Native apps seem to write just fine to a memory card. Here is an article explaining this:http://www.androidcentral.com/kitkat-sdcard-changes
There are workarounds. First search for SD card fix in Playstore. There are some apps that are supposed to fix this. I am not sure how well these work however. I think there are some custom roms that also deal with this.
I am going to try another method. I will save to the internal storage then, using the native file manager, transfer the files to the SD card. When I need to use those files transfer them back into internal storage. This method is a a bit cumbersome and may not work as well as I hope but I kind of understand the security concerns. I do not have a lot of storage needs and for the most part will just use internal storage but for those other times will try this method.
