    external sd-card permissions

    Is there a way to change the sd-card permissions without pulling it and using a card reader? I could copy files before iICS update but now I can't. I get an "You don't have enough permission to do that" error. When I check the permissions on the external sd-card, it says d-r. Can I add write to the permissions from within ICS?
    Thanx for any help

    You can change permissions with ES file Explorer. I think you might need root access though. I'm not at my tab at the moment to verify if root is required to change the microSD permission. Doesn't hurt to try.

    Verified, like said below, root is required.

    I'm pretty sure that you have to be rooted first.

    You guys are correct, root needs to be present for it to work.
