Default [Q] read only external SD card

Hi there, I just put an SD card in my new One (M8) (AT&T Stock ROM) and formatted it, but the card seems to be read only. Is there any easy way to be able to write to it directly on the phone?

thanks - I saw that, but think it needs root. I was hoping there was a fix for stock ROM. Note sure I want to root a brand new phone just yet
