Yikes, sounds like bad news. Ext sd seems useless now. Gallery apps don't see pictures and videos, music apps don't see music filesI've been doing some research on storage access in 6.0. Particularly for extsd access. Permissions and how they are granted have changed from previous versions of Android. It seems that read and write access must be asked for and then granted before an app can read and write seperately. It is not "automatically" granted anymore. That would explain why extsd access for most apps is not working as before.
I have been able to get one app, Root Explorer, to play nice with my extsd card but none of the others. TiBu sees the card and I can restore app data from the backup folder, but that's it. I cannot write backup data to it and I can't restore a previous Android ID. The app does not have proper permissions granted to do so.
Other apps such as Docs to Go and Avast Mobile Security don't even see it. I can browse to a file on it with Root Explorer and open it with D2G, but I can't open it from within D2G. In Avast I can't have the card included in a security scan because of it.
One other note. If you do decided to use the sd card as internal storage make sure to reboot afterwards before you actually start using the newly formatted storage space or there will be issues. Also after you do this the storage card cannot be moved and easily used in another device because it is encrypted and made part of the originating device's file storage system.
So, if you have extsd issues it isn't the ROM's fault. It's because of changes in 6.0. The team isn't going to be the one to fix this, the app developers will have to.
That is if I understand all that I have read correctly.
