    As the title says, on my phone I can't write or access my SD Card on certain apps, I try to plug in my phone to my PC and I can't delete or copy any files to it, it also says that I have an error the screen overlay or something like that (it's in Portuguese, I don't know quite the term in English) and it's becoming very annoying. Does anyone know some sort of fix?

    As for writing (which includes deleting and copying) to the SD card, only the app that created the folder can write to it. I believe Google made that change as of 4.4.2. (It doesn't matter whether you access the folder through the screen and keyboard or through an external computer, the phone still can't write to the folder on the card unless the app doing the writing has write permissions to the folder. If you take the card out of the phone and plug it into the computer [using an adapter if you need one], and the computer isn't running Linux, it doesn't know about Linux's permissions, so the computer can write to folders and delete files in folders.)
