 +==== Accessing external card on Xiaomi devices ====
  
 +Reports from users revealed that Xiaomi phones have by default disabled system //Documents// app, and for this reason [[.:write_in_android_5|writing to external memory card]] doesn't work.
 +
 +
 +=== Symptoms ===
 +
 +When X-plore (or other file manager) tries to write to memory card, it attempts to ask for access, but fails with error message like this:\\
 +{{:xplore:docs_off.png?200|}}
 +
 +
 +=== Solution ===
 +
 +Open system settings and go to //Apps//. Find application named Documents. You may need to enable to show system apps from menu. You may also filter to show only disabled apps, then you may find it easy. Then //enable// the app, and retry task in X-plore. This is reported to fix the problem.
