    I just updated my tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab A) to Android 6.0.1 and suddenly none of my apps can find files on my external SD card. On top of that, they can't seem to find the SD card at all.
    My files are still on the card, and the card is mounted. I can navigate to the SD card and browse the files if I go through the My Files app, but that's all I can do.
    I copied the files (they're mostly .cbr and .epub files, btw) to an external HD, formated the card, and put the files back on, but I'm still having the same problem. I restored factory settings on my device and I'm still having this problem!

    OP here.

    The apps I'm having trouble with are Astonishing Comic Reader, FBReader, VLC, and Adobe Acrobat. They all have storage permission , by the way.

    I experienced this with Perfect Viewer (cbr related) I uninstalled and set it up again and it has worked fine since the OS update. May be worth giving it a go.

    I already reset the tablet to factory settings and it didn't work.

    Seems it's an app problem with Astonishing. Read the reviews https://plus.google.com/communities/...8-841dcbb437ca
    Same with FBReader and VLC
    The problem is they don't work with Marshmallow 6.01
