    games say they are going to download to sd card but actually save to /mnt/sdcard

    title says it all. many games tell me after install that they need to download additional data to my SD card but it ends up on mnt/sdcard instead of /mnt/external_SD. why? can this be fixed? I may have to sell this 8gb if I can't figure out how to get games to use the correct storage for the additional game data. I realize the app must reside on internal and that's fine.

    Nothing can be done about that Honeycomb won't allow for application data to be installed on the external SD card.

    OK I know I mentioned it in another thread. it just seems strange given all the games that give me the choice to download to external but just save to internal. a big disappointment for me in honeycomb.

    Hi, New user here. Any word on whether or not this issue will be fixed in updates? Kind of silly to have 8gb only for apps. it should be at least a 16gb min. tab. Additional data for HD and 3D games take up too much space.

    This is the only thing that is disappointing me about this device.

    The only way to accomplish this is by rooting your device which will void your warranty unfortunately.

    Yeah, it's dumb. When I buy the game it says it needs permission to read and write to my sd card. Then when it installs it asks me if I want it to go to the SD card, then it puts it on the regular memory. It seems very strange that you'd have to hack your tablet to get basic functionality like this.
