Can't delete anything on the sd card
I have es file explorer which lets you delete files on the sd card on Lollipop but it seems the function doesn't work and if I want to delete a file on my sd card I have to take the sd card out and delete it with my pc.

Is the SD card mounted rw in file explorer?

[quote=""]Is the SD card mounted rw in file explorer?[/quote] How doesn't that require root? I'm used to having root and just fixing the permissions issue. Lol. Thanks.

What file format is the microSD card formatted as? What size is the microSD card?

I think that lollipop doesnt give permissons to apps to write in ext sdcard, only read. Usually the file explorer that comes preinstalled in a smartphone has this permisons but the shield doesnt come with any so i guess we are stuck until nvidia integrates a native file explorer.

[quote=""][quote="ManuelG"]What file format is the microSD card formatted as? What size is the microSD card?[/quote]I believe the card is ntfs.[/quote] Pretty sure it has to be formatted as FAT32 if you wish to delete files from the microSD card.

Android TV is missing a component to support the workaround provided by ES File Explorer. We are targeting this for the first OTA update to SHIELD Android TV.

Any update on this? Just got my 16GB Shield ATV in the mail, and I've got this issue with the latest update. Seems the fix didn't make it into the latest update?

Me too. I found that out by the hard way while performing backup of Kodi. The backup process was interrupted so I thought to target the internal storage and then move the backup to MicroSD. To my surprise I couldn't that either. And when the next update will arrive? August is almost a history :-)

At this point, I don't think it's happening. Android M addresses this via a different mechanism, so we may just have to wait for Android M. Until then, we have limited control over the MicroSD. So, move all apps to MicroSD that you can spare, but for folders where you want to edit the content, use local storage. Additionally, I recommend keeping Kodi in local storage. I have a relatively quick MicroSD card, but with Kodi on MicroSD, artwork for movies/shows loads a little slowly. With local storage, it's nearly instant just like the Nexus Player. It's atrocious on the 500GB Pro model, however.

I was aware of that the mentioned/quoted update, but thinking more of the upcoming one.

Sorry for bumping an old thread but did this issue ever get fixed? As i am having the same problem with the most recent firmware (as of today). I cant physically write to the 64Gb sdcard (formatting as NTFS, same problem when formatted as exFat) using sftp or es file explorer. I have to take the sdcard out and plug it into my pc to copy anything to it. I dont really want to root the device just so i can have the ability for write access to the card. sdcard model: SanDisk Ultra Android 64 GB microSDXC Memory Card plus SD Adapter up to 80 MB/s, Class 10. TIA
