**Please be advised that I have only tested this on my personal N9005. However, you are free to test it on your own devices at your own risk!! **

1. Using a root-enabled file manager, 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.

Attached is a copy of my platform.xml.

More simple : NeXtApp SDFIX from Play Store do the job !

It worked at first on my Samsung Galaxy S4 but doesn't anymore. I have tried using NextappSdfix app and manually changing it..... but still the same result. My S4 is rooted. The change is visible on my etc/permissions folder but I don't have the permission. I have restored factory settings and done the whole process from scratch....... It doesn't fix it. It's soooo frustrating.

Please I need help on this ASAP.

A rooted ATT S3 SGH-I747 running 4.4.2 (I747UCUFNJ2) and a rooted ATT S5 SM-G900A running 5.0 (G900AUCU4BOF3)

Now if I can just get Titanium Backup to move my data over to the S5, on my 2nd try (SMS, Clock alarms, Calendar, etc)
