helloooo

when i am prompted to where i want to save a download... i am only given the option to save to my internal hard drive... is there a way i can just go straight to the external harddrive for certain downloads instead of downloading to the internal then switching it to the external after the download has completed?

Like in your web browser? In Chrome, go to Preferences -> Under the Hood -> Downloads at the bottom and hit Browse and choose where you want it to go. In Firefox, go to Preferences -> General -> Downloads in the middle then hit Choose. In Safari, go to Preferences -> General -> Save downloaded files to (then just change the location).

Yea but it's through one of those browsers, right? When you download something from Megaupload, Rapidshare, anywhere from a browser, it goes to the browser default file. Just change the default file and it sill start going.

Like the default file for Mac OS X is "Downloads". Anything I download in Safari, Chrome, FF goes to Downloads. If I changed it to say "Pictures" everything would go to pictures". So just plug in your external, and select it from the section in the first post.
