I used to copy my pic and videos to SD-card for ages - after last update I cannot anymore - both the Windows USB-mass storage side and SCP via WLAN give me wierd errors like:

General failure (server should provide error description). Error code: 4 Error message from server: Failure

with SCP/SFTP i'm trying to use path /media/sdcard/12F2-0633/Pictures (which allready has my old pictures) (all other write actions to SD-card from outside fail too, but inside the phone I can write to sd-card)

Any ideas?

Which version of SailfishOS are you on?

12F2-0633 looks like the SD-Card is mounted by label, while in the latest SFOS releases the SD-Card is mounted by UUID sth. along the likes of: 758f3a1a-a19a-451a-97af-dd86d73f77bf

Have you checked if the path is still valid - maybe with an on-device file manager?
