The only way ive found is if you go into the htc more storage wizard from settings it will move mp3 jpeg and vids to sd for you.

Ive tried copying files with es file explorer to internal then moved them with storage wizard it doesnt see the files but if i use astro to move the files then htc wizard sees it!

So a semi working soloution hope it helps someone

I find out using the polaris file manager managed to write data on my external card but the problem some games I've installed required a big space it would be be nice if the phone reads the external card as sdcard.

Thumbs up solution without rooting htc 816

Hello,
This method can be used to any kit kat device. (it doesn't void warranty)
use solid explorer beta file manager for this method(it can edit root folder without rooting device) use particular this version
1. navigate to /system/etc/permissions
2. Edit platform.xml and find the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission.
3. Add an additional group definition for this permission: <group gid=”media_rw” />
4. Save the changes to the file.
5. Restart the phone.

Use particular solid explorer beta 1.2.2 version(you can get it on something torrapk.com)
If you get the expired version when it displays that this version is expired use it by clicking on its background and follow the procedure.

Tried with both solid explorer beta 1.2.2 and es explorer also! Gives no root error to save file!

Guess you have root access by default! Any one had good luck on this?
