It certainly looks like, Google has disabled USB Mass storage option for most recent Android versions as you probably have noticed, do not allow you to mount SD Card / storage partition as USB Mass Storage (UMS) when plugging it to a computer.
Given that you are rooted, you can try the following resoltuions:
- Using terminal to mount mass storage
setprop persist.sys.usb.config mass_storage,adb reboot
If you want to go back to MTP, open terminal emulator and enter:
su setprop persist.sys.usb.config mtp,adb reboot
su setprop sys.usb.config mtp,adb reboot
- Activate auto-mount when USB debugging is enabled.
As previously mentioned, when USB debugging is enabled the sd card will automatically mount when connected to the computer provided the drivers were installed correctly.
Thus you will not get persistent notifications about sd card monting
