    Welcome to the forums. Google removed the permissions to write to the card in Jelly Bean and replaced it, but modified what can be written in KitKat.

    Long story short - only the owner of a folder (the app that created it) or root (the Linux administrator) can write to or change a folder. The SD card is now sort of part of the Linux file system, not just a FAT32 storage area. In some respects it's better, in some it makes things more difficult to those used to having multiple apps write to the same folder. (It's called "progress", and some people think it should be called "regress".)
