    Anyone seen that "Downloads" folder (or is it an app)? There's nothing in it. Even if I place something in it via computer, it still says there's nothing in it. So I wonder what is that for?

    Apparently it's not for downloads, because even if I download something, it's still empty.

    Most likely for firmware downloads and updates... I may be off but thats what I am assuming

    It looks like files I downloaded from my browser have gone in there.

    I have not downloaded anything from the browser yet, maybe that's why it's empty. Will test that.
