    I hit the 3 dots in corner grant access to sd card , dit it couple times then took me to blank page I hit 3 bars on left of it show's my sd card tap on it
    The three dots don't give me that option - no matter how many times I try...Permission to operate... must perform the certain steps to grant SD card access rights.-screenshot_20190218-140442_file-manager.jpg

    No sir - I get this: Permission to operate... must perform the certain steps to grant SD card access rights.-screenshot_20190218-142717_file-manager.jpg Tapping the MicroSD just takes me back to the same page with the three lines.

    Take your card out and reinstall it see what happens

    Try with ASUS file manager uninstalled.
    Why do you need it? Stock app is fine.
    If you have SanDisk SD card maybe you want their utility also.

    I used ASUS a long long time ago. The other file managers but haven’t for some time. Astro file mgr pro, Solid explorer pro, ES also.

    SD Maid Pro gives full access. But then what’s wrong with Samsung’s My Files app?

    I just have to ask why bother with a clearly problematic app when there's My Files app in there that does everything you want?

    I'm getting this as well. There is no "Show SD Card" in the menu, just "Permission to Use SD Card" which just brings up the tutorial every time. Frustrating! I've tried over and over again, with the same result every time. I can see and open files on the SD card, but can't move, copy or delete them. Any ideas?

    Okay I found a solution to this unbelievably stupid glitch of not being able to grant access to SD card ....simply download the "Samsung My Files" app from the google play store and you can move files from any external usb drive to your micro sd card or internal storage without needing some magical access granted permission that may or may not actually exist on these new phones

    I have had a similar problem. While using a podcast I disabled the storage permission expecting an error from the podcast application when it was not able to save data. The application continued to save data. The difference between your issue is this was local storage. Later it stopped saving data and when I turned storage permission on it continued to work.
