You can't, this is a current permission problem (bugreport here) of Android 4.0+'s /sdcard folder if it's not using FAT32 (but FUSE). Reason: There's a transition away from FAT32 to unified user storage for both apps and media data (using ext4) on a single file system. We got tired of seeing OEMs include many GB of internal storage for music, while ...

My solution was as follows - I used Windows 8.1, but no reason this wouldn't work on OSX/Linux (root is required on device however). On your PC, create a .tar.gz archive of ...
