You can use only file commander to access/move media to SD.

Yeah, get this! It's "by design" !

What ..! Wasn't warned, this is ridiculous, and now things just don't work that used to before. Can't even begin to imagine the rationale behind this, one restriction that I can't see serving any purpose. So many apps and uses I have for this phone now are now useless and I need to rethink how to go about it all.

 

**bleep** sake, I might has well have stayed with Apple !
