Hello! I am using XA2 free trial with

I formatted a new micro sdxc card (Sandisk ultra 128gb/AND/200gb 10 a1) to ext4. Both sdxc Cards are recognised in Settings/Storage, I mounted it via Settings/storage. Now i get an error, that says 'no permission to access /run/media/nemo/name of the card/'. On the card there is a lost+found folder. I cannot write anything on the sdxc-card. I tried formatting to fat32, but i get the same error.

Any solution?

Do you have terminal access? Did you try checking the permissions of that folder or the sdcard itself. devel-su chmod a+w /run/media/nemo/name of the sdcard should work as command

The 128Gb worked, the 200Gb gave an error (folder not found). Formatting in Sailfish gave an error (card may be in an unstable state). Maybe I am a noob - but there really should be a more comfortable way to add sd-cards. Thank you for your help!
