SD card - default download location?

  • Hi there.

    Is there a way to tell the Opera to download files defaultly to an SD card?
    If i try to choose download folder, it does not allow me to choose any folder on SD card.
    I can choose any folder on internal storage. However, I want to use SD card flash memory
    as much as possible, because flash memory has limited write cycles before dying.
    Device's internal flash memory is not replaceable but the SD card can be easily replaced with the new one.

    I usually download 2-3 GBs of videos a day. Watch them, then delete and the next day just like that.
    My devices is older one, but reliable and I really like the fine display. So I would be really unhappy if the
    16 GB internal flash memory died, because without it the device would be no longer operational.

    I am using Android 4.4.2 which is the newest possible official ROM for my device.

    One more question:
    In Opera's settings > Autofill > Cards; option "Never ask" means that Opera will never ask user
    to save and store credit card information and will automatically save it, OR it means that Opera
    will both never ask and never save automatically credit card information?

    Thank you.

  • Thanks for the feedback.
    May i know which device are you using? i have tried it on one of the Android 4.4.2 device an i can choose SD card by choosing "parent folder" couple of time.
