What do you mean, trouble reading or writing to the sdcard? Try formatting the card on the phone itself, that usualy works.

What are you trying to do with the card? it might be that you just are not aware with how Android Kitkat treats the sd card slot?

Probably......only File Manager can write or delete files on my sd card, Xplore or a different Manager can't, is it normal in KitKat?

Apps can only write and edit files that they themselves created on the SD card which is why third party apps are not working. It is to stop rouge apps deleting / creating / modifying files that they shouldn't be.

With files you mean system files or files created by you? You should be able to delete or move files with an alternative file explorer or you might try gaining root (towel root is easiest) to gain admin rights.

If you root your phone, you can remove the limitations that were added in KitKat.

Many 'newbie experts' who say that an 8 or 16GB phone is fine as you can move apps etc. to an SD card are finding out the hard way that KitKat restrictions prevent using the card the same way as it used to be in older Android versions unless the device is rooted.

I have been having the random removals of the sdcard. I have a 64gb ultra I card and it worked perfectly in the samsung i had before this. I have taken everything off it and reformatted with eh LG G3 and it still randomly removes the card. I have purchased another 64gb card and does the same thing.

Any ideas of a fix?

No rooted (yet) but i can if it will fix the issue.

Someone else had the same problem and they did an equipment swap and the new G3 didn't have the problem.

So it might be the SD card slot itself or its interface and a exchange might be neccessary.
