im still confused on whats going on,.... last night i reformatted my SDXC card to FAT32,... but the problem is still there,...

i tried using the File Commander app that came pre-installed with the device...... for some reason i can rename, delete and even create files and folders.... this is the only app that let's me do all those things when it comes to the external SD card.

other apps such as QuickPic won't allow me to delete, rename or whatever i have to do my pictures on the external SD card
Yeah. That's expected behavior on a non-rooted KK phone. My problem is that I'm rooted and I can't get anything to write to external. Total Commander, Root Explorer, ES File Explorer, Camera apps, etc. Nothing will write to External SD no matter how many times I make the required mods to the platform.xml file. It is driving me nuts.

I had the same issue before when I upgraded my S4 to KK, but installing FolderMount solved it, when I started the app it showed me a message that my phone has some settings that will not make the app work and it asked me if I want to correct it.. I said yes, restart and viola every thing is okay...

I don't know if it will work on Z2 ( I still didn't have it yet ) but you might try it...

Yeah you need to use the built-in file manager, File Commander, to delete your photos on microsd for non-rooted.

Looks like it was a bad card after all. I swapped it out and now everything works as it is supposed to. I have other issue, but I'll open a new thread for those

Thanks for the help folks!
