    Hey, can someone help me. My sd card slot is broken and doesn't work but i do have 4 gigs of memory in phone.. but every time i try to download something from the web it says Sd not found or not enough memory even though i have like 2 gig of space left in my phone's memory. so does any one know how to change the default download location to the phone not the sd card ??:thinking:

    Use es file explorer, go to settings, download manager settings, change location. Download with es file explorer.

    Download the app called es file explorer. Menu button > settings > directory settings > download path. Set to /data/media/* next time you go to download something in chrome, pick es file manager to download it instead.
