  • What’s funny is the Amazon MP3 store downloader automatically downloads to the micro SD card in my Motorola Droid. I observed similar behavior with my HP Touchpad running CyanogenMod (have it set to dual boot with WebOS so the WebOS partition shows up as a ‘SD card’ in Android). I’m guessing they store to the storage device with the most free space/capacity. The OG Droid has so little internal (non-SD) storage I could only fit a few songs on it.

    • Hola John,
      Thanks for the info. That is good news about the Droid. On my SGS4 it does not store on the microSD card. However, I first installed the app before mounting a card. Then I installed the card and no dice. So I uninstalled/re-installed the app and tried again. Still no luck. 🙁

      Eventually I’ll reset my device to factory defaults and try again but so far the results are disappointing. I really wish Amazon would add an option for directly setting where music is stored!
