  • Hi sweetchild22,

    Welcome to windows phone development forum.

    Please check Access the SD card in Windows Phone apps first, and make sure you have registered the file extensions associated with the type of media that you want to read and write in Declaration part in Manifest.

    In addtion, I will recommend you to leverage futureAccessList so that you can easily access the files in the future. And the samples mentioned in this will be helpful as well.

  • Windows Phone 8 supports read-only access to the SD card; Windows Phone 8.1 provides read/write access. An app can only see and work with files when it has registered as a handler for that file type. For more info, see Access the SD card in Windows Phone apps. To test your app with this new feature, the Windows Phone Emulator now includes support for a simulated SD card. For more info, see Test app features in Windows Phone Emulator.
