Default HOW to access microSD card in Android v.4.4.x - KitKat

Gidday Folks

Google, in their infinite wisdom, have decided to lock us out of our highly expensive microSD cards with KitKat ... .

Most solutions suggested involve ROOTING one's device, a procedure that conveniently voids any/all warranties that you may have had.

The program at the URL below just adds a programming module to your device. This does not involve ROOTING your device.

You have to enable third party installations for this to be allowed.

Restart your device before proceeding.

Then download the file manager called X-plore from the Google Play Store, and you now have full access to your microSD card again.

X-plore also allows for simple, easy access to Windows computers on a network as a WiFi network device, without having to use the laborious process of plugging your device in using a USB cable ... .

It has only taken me around 3 hours to work all this out ...

Good old Google. Going down the path of Microsoft, Adobe and Apple ... .
