SD Card Encryption and MTP File transfer


I want to use SD Card Encrpytion on my LG G4. I encrypted the SD Card and its contents and everything seemed fine. There was some overheating but I don't know if its related.

When I tried to copy files onto an off of the SD card using MTP, I couldn't. The file transfer in either direction would freeze.

I could copy files onto a USB flash drive or into internal storage using File Manager, but the files were not decrypted during the transfer.

If I encrypt my SD card, how to I get files on and off of it? I want the encryption primarily to protect downloaded documents and photos, but I also need to move those files off of the phone. Plus, I need to move media, like music, onto the SD Card.

Thank you
