    Yes. I can browse to it and launch files from it. I suspect it is something Samsung is saving me from. Like using the SD card they provided a slot for. They might as well just skip it and save me $100. Oh wait, If I was OK with that, I would have gotten an iPad for the same price.

    Double checked. The directory selection is on my Galaxy S4 and not on my Galaxy Note 10.1 2014.

    When you first got the card, did you reformat it through the device?

    Yes. I did a test with a different card to be sure. Same result. No options to reset directories. Thanks for trying to work through it with me.

    I just got this message from DroidTV regarding this problem:The new KitKat operating system has caused many issues, chief among which for our purposes is the removal of the SD memory storage capability.* We have a new version that should be available next month.* We are working hard to make sure that the next version will address all of the issues causes by this new OS, as well as include compatibility with Chromecast and a few other new technologies and a new User Interface that will bring greater value to users with larger screens.* The release of the next version should coincide with our return to Google Play.* We are anxiously awaiting that day and we expect it to come this month.* Sorry for any delays.

    i have this same problem on a non-samsung device. the internal storage and /mnt/sdcard are being recognized as different partitions in my storage viewer under settings (ver 4.2). i have the option to move apps to the sd card in the apps manager as we all know, but when i do it goes to the sdcard partition which is actually the internal storage and the actual card is unaffected. any app data that should be going to the sd card is going into the /mnt/sdcard partition. not to mention the size of the partitions don't match up (although the fake sdcard's available space is less than the internal storage but data gets thrown into each separately according to the OS but file explorers show the /mnt/sdcard is the first subdirectory of the internal storage. sure i could just move everything out of said directory but any file explorer will not show me a directory above the /mnt/sdcard and windows doesn't even recognize /mnt/sdcard as a subdirectory. the fake sdcard is what is shown in windows and is also shown with the improper available space value. Both the internal storage partition and the fake sdcard partition can be half full but physics takes it's course and nothing will let me update or download although there is no insufficient storage error. So......... hopefully this bit of info helps guide the experts to a clear fix n less smart *** answers. This is much more than a samsung problem so perhaps it's not samsung's responsibility to fix this per se but any help is helpful. just don't totally blame them for the problem.
