Default [Q] can't write to the external sd card (Aosp)

I don't know what the prob is but I was able to write to my sd card this happened like a week ago I was on a 4.4.2 two rom and had no issues with it then I went to an aosp room still no issues then I flashed another aosp rom and that's when I noticed the problem I can read the sd card I can even copy stuff from my external sd card to my internal one no prob but when I try to copy something from my internal to external I get an error message saying read only file system I tried those sdfix apps I tried a couple of them and they all say I'm good I have permissions to write on the sd card but I still can't. Has anyone had this prob or can point me in the right direction any help will be appreciated.

I did search allot of them said use the sdfix apps which does nothing for me and I found one post that had a temp fix but I couldn't even get it to work using that method.. or maybe I just over looked the answer..

You could also try formatting the SD card, or try a different one if you have a spare

Yea I think I'm gonna format it I've been doing allot of reading about that f2fs format I'm gonna do my whole phone in that format I think.. I changed roms one two one aosp neither one helped so I'm guessing it's not Rom related I never take my sd card out of my phone I haven't wiped it I just don't get how one day I can write to it and another day I can't..
