    VUDU File Location on Kindle Fire HD

    Where are downloaded movies stored on the Kindle Fire HD (side loaded)? We are going on a long train trip and I would like to download a lot of our movies from our online library for our children.

    Space on the Kindle Fire HD is a concern so I would like to offload the downloaded files temporarily and then move them back when needed. I've downloaded a couple of movies but can't seem to locate the downloaded files. Maybe I am asking something that can't be done... but I am curious!

    You got me curious, too. It doesn't seem to be in files you can see from an attached computer. I browsed around using File Manage on the device and still had no luck. I'll have to look some more when I have time.

      Did you check Show Hidden Items on PC?

        MattO: "It doesn't seem to be in files you can see from an attached computer."

        Yes, I have tried everything I can think of including sorting every file by size, downloading a new movie and sorting by most recent, etc. I am trying to think of other ways to sort and find the file.


        Otter0911: Did you check Show Hidden Items on PC?

        Yes. I also made sure I could see the extensions. No luck. I've tried searching partial file names using every possible extension that would make sense and some that make no sense at all!

          Another weekend of aggravation! The files are hidden very well...

            This thread is a good discussion of the likely issue. Some folders can only be accessed by their "parent" app.

              Ugh. I sort of figured that might be the case.

                I have ES File Explorer on all my Androids; Vudu downloads are stored in /sdcard/com.vudu.air.DownloaderTablet and its subfolders. If your actual SD card is in a different folder (i.e., /mnt/ext_sdcard on my Nook HD), look there also; many tablets redirect /sdcard to internal memory, but if you had an SD card inserted when you installed Vudu it'll usually store it there.

                The bad news: Due to DRM restrictions, you can't do anything with the download besides play it in Vudu; if you copy it elsewhere, or even remove the SD card from your tablet, the file is useless and must be re-downloaded. UV's Common File Format (CFF) is supposed to permit backups as long as you have an Internet connection to re-enable the DRM license, but CFF won't be ready till late this year at the earliest; AFAIK none of the current UV retailers' DRM schemes permit backups.

                  Thank you for the answer... saved me from more aggravation. I guess it doesn't matter at this point even if I could find the file. At least VUDU allows you to play downloaded files without an internet connection (unlike Flixster). I guess we'll pick movies carefully!
