I think it depends on which browser you're using. I only use the stock browser and Chrome. In the stock browser, go to Settings, Advanced, then Default Storage. In Chrome I can't find a way to change the default location for downloads, they go to /storage/sdcard0/Downloads. Maybe it's because I'm not signed in to Chrome, I don't know.

Hope this helps.

Just installed Opera. I don't see an option to save to the extsdcard, or even the /storage folder where I can select it, only the sdcard, which of course is internal.

what you do is this... when you start downloading something it gives you the first window, it says to seven it in "downloads" which Is the internal storage, but you center change it... you click on top f "downloads" and select "other" then "/mnt" then "extSDcard" and that's your External Storage... but it won't save anything there... just in the internal storage

At first I didn't notice I was using Opera Mini, tried again with Opera Mobile, and the only options in /mnt for a download location are asec, obb, and secure. No path to the extsdcard. Is that what you're seeing?

Rebooted it, same thing, only three locations. Might be the type of file I'm downloading (.mp3). Maybe another Opera user can offer some info...
