    Hello

    I able to stored apps from PC in SD Card. In Andriod I already got file exploer easy istaller etc.

    While I can see android reconigoe SD download but I can`t find the apps there to open up. It was download to some folder with many sub folders in web setting. I read online that download apps should go to root folder. Mine seem to download other sub folders I suspect. but not root folder. how I make sure download go to root folder, if this right way about it?

    I put all my apps in a folder called 'system' in the root directory of the SD card. In that I have an 'apps' and 'games' folders to put the associated .apk's. Works great for me.

    Hello

    want to added it may be that my android firmware is 2.1 sorry:) I thought it was 2.2 if that any affect on sd card.

    on some reviews manually update from 2.1 to 2.2. I think I damamged my sd card. re formant appear not work, give no sign of doing that,maybe because i pull sd card usb out.

    at the moment all I care about is know-how to basiclly about download apps from sd card into andriod .
    out of intrest, is the `system` folder is THE only storage placed for sd card download files? what sub folder do i open those akp files up in AndExploxer I have ? assuming it only Apps why I dont see the akps file names by sd card?
    bit frustanted not able to get grips with andriod basic! toddler son forever asking to play games on it.
