I recently rooted my Hudl and all appears well.  Just noticed however that certain apps e.g. kindle don't store books on the sd card, nor does the camera store images there.  On my android phone this happened automatically, or maybe a one-time pop up where do you want to store etc.  How do I make the Hudl use the sd card?  Card seems OK, I can write to it from pc.

 

Just before posting this I took the card out and re-seated it and the Hudl is now showing these folders in the sd card (using root explorer) but if i look at it on pc Windows file manager says they are in internal memory and shows only 2 folders in the sd card, data and lost.dir, data folder just has 1 file relating to titanium backup.

I used the FolderMount app which pairs folders on the tablet to the SD card and locates the data on the sd card. Very useful for iplayer. However, it does seem to me that from a cold start you need to wait about 10-15 secs for confirmation that the app has done its stuff otherwise there is a risk of running the app that requires the data (say iplayer) and finding it aint there

Thanks for that, I'll have a look at foldermount.  I think there may be a problem withe the hudl recognising the card.  Using root explorer, when I click on sd card it shows internal storage, I can't see anything on the card.  This is a new card and I added a load of ebooks to see if I could access them but nothing shows.  Long press on storage shows card is read only do you want to set read/write but when I do still nothing.  Anyone else have this issue?

SD card is the internal storage area, you need to look under mnt/external_sd for the, umm, external ( real ) SD card
