    Since this device supports up to 32GB microSDHC, I figured I could move apps I installed to the external memory. I have a 16GB chip in there now with about 8GB of music, books and videos already on it. I have installed quite a few apps and since I can't figure out how to direct the installation process to install to the external memory, I have to use some other app to move it over. I used the default 'application manager' and 'successfully' moved the apps over. However, within a day or so, the new installed and moved app, ceases to work and gives me a "force close" error. I then tried an app called "App 2 SD Pro". Same result. So what gives?

    Can apps not be installed and/or moved to the external memory of these devices? Please note, that I have not moved any apps pre-installed on the device to the external mem. The option is not selectable anyway for most of those.

    EDIT: I have to uninstall the app and reinstall it and it works fine ... until I move it to the external memory.

    Thanks. I don't have a problem seeing or viewing my 16GB microSDHC external card. I can read my books, listen to my music and watch movies that are all on the storage card. I've even downloaded app files to the card and installed them from there. What I can't seem to figure out is how to either install future apps directly to the card or why when I move installed apps from the device to the external card, they cease to work. And no, the Kyros 7024 doesn't have Android 3.0.
