    UPDATE - this appears to be a known - issue -

    http://gs4.wonderhowto.com/how-to/b...ns-android-4-4-kitkat-your-galaxy-s4-0152036/

    this is insane

    how could they change such fundamental and critical functionality without giving us an option!?

    I paid $$ for my phone due to this functionality - to use my SD card in it ..

    ============================================

    all the NON ROOTED users - is there any solution?

    my initial post:

    when I try to delete SOME files from SD card using

    native File Manager - it says "failed to delete"

    ES File explorer - it says "cannot be deleted"

    reboot to no avail

    and even if I manage it via USB using a PC - it says - "storage is write-protected"

    only solution is to take out the card physically put it into an adapter and into a PC to manage it :/

    I think I was able to do it ..

    till some update :/

    please help ..

    how do you do it?

    how can it be done?

    thank you ..

    I am on SM-N900 not rooted

    In app drawer you got Samsung.. with some apps.. like Internet, Calculator, Downloads, S translator or so. There is also an app called My files or similar.. Just open All.. navigate.. move, delete.. its a powerful file explorer with all rights in your system.

    Hope this help you
