Default download location?

Usually things download to the "Download" folder on my mass memory.

But since i've updated to v20 it now downloads to the "Download" folder on my microSD card.

How can i change this?

I don't know the answer , since I don't own a N97 .
But I am pretty sure there must be a setting for E: mass memory or F: MemoryCard . Normally , in Nokia phones , at downloading there is a pop-up to select the location . When the pop-up doesn't show , the download will be in C: device memory .
Anyway , you can remove memorycard and download something to see what happens . Hopefull that will change the settings ?

Under normal circumstances you should get the choice of where to download to. C: Phone Memory, E: Mass Memory or F: Memory Card.

However, if you are downloading whilst connecting via Ovi Suite then you choose the download preference in Ovi Suite settings.

Using the built in browser, i.e. Clicking on a zip file link, it starts downloading it to the Download folder. No option of where, there never has been, it just saves it to that folder.
I just want it to use the folder on the mass memory instead of the microSD.

Yes, i have tried taking my microSD out and downloading, it downloads to the mass memory (like i want it to) but when i put my memory card back in and try downloading something again, it goes back to my microSD.

The BBC iplayer app is the reason i want to know the answer to this problem.
When you click the download button on a program in the iplayer app, it loads the web browser and asks if you want to accept or decline the program download.
Due to my microSD card being very nearly full, i don't want it to keep saving things there just for me to have to use x-plore to move them over to the mass memory.

As far as i can tell, i've been through all the settings and can't find any options to change this.
