Re: Install Games on SDHC Card? - 11-14-2008, 01:17 PM
if you want better performance,I would suggest buy a 2nd SDHC,and when you install games,do it on the SSD,and when you are not playing the games,move the install folder to the SDHC to save room on the SSD
I do the same thing,except I put the Install folders on my 80G HDD

actually, just a heads up for anyone that doesn't know or maybe not very computer savy, you can also map a folder on your desktop to use as a network drive for your mini if you want (as long as you only use said programs/games at home). It works great and beats having to constantly swap SDcards or USB thumb drives.
to set it up, go onto your desktop and find a folder (or hard drive) you want to share (in my case, z:\netbook_Progs\), right click on the folder > properties >click the sharing tab and click to share that folder and name it what you want to share it as (I just used the folder name which was "netbook_progs") This was on vista 64Ultimate, you can search how to set it up on XP as I dont have XP in front of me at the moment.
After you get the sharing setup properly go on your netbook, with XP, and go to my computer > tools > map network drive... From there, pick the drive letter you want to assign to said drive (I picked drive g:) and where it says folder, type in \\[COMPUTERNAME]\[SHAREDFOLDERNAME]
. For example, mine looked like "\\Steve-vista\Netbook_progs"
after a second or two, it should display as a drive under my computer than you can install to/from and use as storage
on the go, I rarely use more than 1 or 2 pieces of software, which are installed on the SSD. The rest of my stuff just sits on the network drive.
