None of the solutions on google are working though... And yes, I'm running android 4.4.2 stock on xperia z ultra... Everytime I try to change something on it like download a torrent using ttorrent or add or delete a file on it, it says operation failed and stuff like that... The weird thing is that when I use other file managers like the file commander app, everything works!

It will only work with File Commander.
On kit kat, google has imposed sd card write permissions.
So only Sony stock apps can write into the partition. So you can use File Commander to cut, copy, paste, delete etc.
3rd party apps cannot modify the sd card. This has been done to increase security.
So if you are rooted, search for SD fix on play store.
If you aren't rooted, then root and fix it :P
