    I've got myself a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. It only has 8gb internal, so I figured I'd get a micro SD card to dump stuff on.

    I have a lot of books, mostly epub or pdf files, so I copied them all onto the SD and stuck it in my tablet.

    I was advised that Aldiko was a pretty good multi format reader (which it is) so I downloaded that.

    Problem is, I've entered all my books, but it seems to have copied them to the tablet's interna memory - which has dropped by about 2.5*GB*sunce adding them to Aldiko.

    This kind of defeats the object of getting the damned SD card in the first place!

    Is there a way of setting up so my Aldiko library is read directly from the card without copying the files to the internal memory?

    Thanks.

    If you have a pc (with a card reader) as well, you could try copying your books etc again to the removable sdcard and before re-inserting it into the Tab delete those files (books etc) from the Tab. I only have Amazon books and have no idea what format or where they are (I think they are on the internal sdcard0) but pdf's on my removable extSdCard are useable without problem. According to my Tab I have two sd cards, sdcard0 (internal) and extSdCard (external) - I did not give them those names.
