    I'm coming from 3 years with a Nexus 6 so haven't had to do anything with SD cards on Android in a while. I've been transferring audiobooks to my phones from my pc using TeamViewer for years. Now that I have a V30 I'm using an SD card to store my audiobooks. Other apps can read/write to the sd card after granting permission the first time, but not TeamViewer. I can't remember if it ever asked during setup. I can view sd card files with teamviewer, but when I try to transfer files or create a folder it just says "the folder could not be created". Is there some way to grant write privileges that I'm missing? I went into the app settings, teamviewer, permissions, storage, all permissions, and it has "modify or delete contents" as enabled. No setting in the app itself that I can see.

    There is a way - but the phone has to be rooted because the file that has to be changed is a system file. Use NextApp SDFix: KitKat Writable MicroSD (root) or use a text editor to add the following to /system/etc/permissions/platform.xml:

    <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
    <group gid="sdcard_r" />
    <group gid="sdcard_rw" />
    <group gid="media_rw" />
    </permission>
    <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGE" >
    <group gid="sdcard_rw" />
    <group gid="media_rw" />
    </permission>

    (If any of these lines already exist, just leave them alone - the final text should look like the above. If any line says "ro", change it to "rw".)
