    Motorola Razr M, using Verizon, on Android ver. 4.4 (KitKat)
    Previously was Icecream Sandwich but since it updated the OS, my SD
    card has become read-only. I can no longer take pics and store them on
    the SD card, perform app backups on the SD card, and so on.
    I purchased the SD card with that storage versatility in mind.
    I am hoping that this was not intentional and that a fix in on its way.

    There are lots of fixes in the Play Store and forums if you're rooted. I think you meant your title to say that you want the read-only attribute removed, not the fix removed.

    You can still move photos, Docs, and some apps to the SD card. I store all of my images to the SD card... Use a file browser such as My Files to do it. In order to move apps to the SD card you'll have to go to settings-application manager to move the ones that can be moved.

    The latest OS update no longer allows ANY app to write to the SD card. I use a couple of file manger apps and they can no longer
    write to it as well.
    The best way I can figure is to connect to my pc and transfer back and forth via Explorer. That does work.
    From what I've heard from Verizon... It was an accident and a fix is supposed to be coming out in the near future. With the SD card in RO mode, that sort of defeats the purpose of having it.

    That is what I meant. My bad. That's what I get for not proofing before sending. Thx

    Not true.. The stock camera will write the photo to the SD card.. settings-storage location-memory card and it works for me..

    My Files lets me move files to the SD card.. You can also move many apps to the SD card from application manager.

    I am running ver. 4.4.2 (updated about a wk ago.)
    That's when it began r/o attrib's on the sd card.
    Spoke with Verizon and their Tech's stated it is a function set by the new os.
    I can still write to it with no problems as long as I do it from outside the phone (pc hookup).
