First, go to Settings > Storage and check if the "Default write disk" is set to "SD card". Then go to Settings > Apps and swipe to the left until you get to "SD card". Below will be all the Apps that can be be moved to the external SD card. Click in the box on the right and another page will come up. About in the middle of the page will be "MOVE TO SD CARD" tab. Tap on it and wait until it finishes. Then go back and pick another App to move. You should be able to download apps directly to the external SD card. I haven't done that on this device and not all apps will download to the external SD card (the app maker can restrict downloads to only the internal memory. This tablet is one of the rare few Android devices that allow moving Apps to external memory.
The HTC Desire has 8 Gigabytes of internal memory, but due to the preloaded Android OS and software only 4.5 Gigabytes are available for use. It does not take long to chew up 4.5 GB if you have a lot of music, videos, pictures, and apps. This phone does have a microSD slot though, so you can expand the memory with up to a 64 Gigabyte microSD card. So, below is how you find out if you have a microSD card available:
1. Go into Settings on your phone, and select Storage. This will generally show available storage devices on your phone, including any installed microSD cards. *CAUTION* Your storage devices can be formatted from here - so be careful Not to Format Any Devices as that will wipe all data from the device. If this is not readily visible, move on to option 2.
2. If you are uncertain as to if you have a microSD card installed view the youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJDqdBFtE6U
Open the cover on your phone as detailed in the video and see if there is a card installed where indicated. The card's capacity should be clearly marked on the card.
Only when you have the e200 series version 2 player, videos can be viewed from the microSD card.
