comment My HTC Desire HD A9191 can't mount a SD card
Maybe your SD card is broken. Have you tested it in another device, or in a card reader attached to your computer?

comment Error: “read only file system” on rmdir
You cannot simply delete the /cache dir. That's the mount point for the cache partition, residing on a read-only file system. If in step 6 you get the "read only" error, obviously step 5 failed. And no: you cannot "overwrite" a file or directory with a link.

One of the many Android versions. They all have some "sweet nick-names". I'll update the tag-wiki (link) for you ;)

@MickG That's Kitkat (4.4.2), as I assumed.

I won't ever notice, as I only use above described method. I don't like to be told which lock screen types I have to use, just because I've installed some certificate for a web site ;) Apart from that, I've not yet updated beyond 4.1, so I cannot check.

comment How can android be used as a platform for Robotics?
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! This site is for users of Android, which means that questions about development/programming are off-topic here (see the What topics can I ask about here?). You might also wish to consult Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? for a fitting place to your question.

Lollipop (5.x)? What is your exact Android version (see Settings › About phone on your device if unsure)? Kitkat is the first version I've heard that trouble for (I'm not 100% sure whether it might have been introduced even earlier).

comment Nexus 5 SDCARD files are not writable from PC USB
My first guess from your screenshots was: could it be you're not using MTP, but UMS (USB mass storage) – as when accessed from the PC, the card seems empty on the device? That wouldn't explain the "write protection", but might be part of the issue.
