    Hi all

    As a second user in Android 4.2, I can't seem to access any external storage. The primary user can access everything perfectly. Does anyone know how to get access?

    Thanks
    Alan

    I think this is a security thing.

    The SD card is going to have the files/pictures/music/ect from the primary user.

    Secondary users dont have access to the sd card to prevent access to their files
