No, not without unlocked bootloader/root. But then you can let all user app access the sd-card.

I can confirm on a NON-root device that File Commander does allow you to write to the external SD card with copy/paste(paste option is under the 'edit/page with pencil' icon).

Done it many many times already, shouldn't be a problem at all.
Awesome, thanks @EonHawk. That was not intuitive to me either.

Easy fix guys: Install NextApp SDfix.apk. It fixes the sd card privileges to allow all read write permissions for sdcard.

This "NextApp SDfix" requires ROOT, the mentioned app does not need anything to work.
