Default Sd card issues - solved

Hi guys,

I recently bought an s4 and my 32gb sd card acts weird with it: can't rename files in any other file manager but only with the stock one, can't save camera recorded videos to the SD card only to device memory, when trying to save or to SD card the video disappears. I wonder if this is a sd card issue or a software glitch. I fully reformatted the card but the issue persists.
Anyone with the same experience maybe?

Thank you a lot

You can't save anything to the SD card or write on it at all, Google killed write access with kitkat.

It's interesting, can anything be done about it? I'm not even sure what Kitkat exactly is but it seems like it's not an SD card error at all. As I said I can move staff from memory to SD card but can't seems to directly save pics or videos from an app to throw sd card. Thanks guys for helping me with this. Really appreciate it

I think I have found the solution, the stock apps would let me do all the stuff I want, others I would download, do not. For example, the stock camera would let me save to the sd card the one I have from the playstore would not. I think I can live with that knowing that its a sofware issue.
