Path problem with phone settings migration

I have upgraded phones. I migrated a backup of the settings to the new phone to keep from having to reenter all of the information on my 50+ feeds. All my feeds are on the sd card (as well as previous downloads from the previous device). This sd card was moved to the new device.

When I got the settings in, I was working on getting the paths set as the new device structures its drives. But (in Feed Settings->Advanced -> FeedStoreage Directory -> Edit and click the ellipses to specify the new directory, I get an error message that states, cannot list directory. How can I resolve this error so that I can list the directories with the existing podcast files?

Clicking the 'Select Current Directory' button on the 'Select Directory' screen closes the screen, but does not put me at a directory that I can work with. The Default button on the Feed Settings->Advanced -> FeedStoreage Directory area also does not leave me with a workable directory.

I am hoping I will not have to change the directories by editing a file inside the transferred zip manually, recreate the zip file, and re-import the settings using the manually created zip file.

Can someone potentially offer some assitance?

What version of Android is on your device? If it's Marshmallow, See FAQ article Why am I experiencing external storage (SD Cards) problems after my device has been upgraded to Marshmallow (Android 6.0)?
