Bug 499807 changed the default download location on Windows CE to "\Hard Disk". The device we're working with has since updated the FS layout, and that path no longer exists.

Hmm, I tried copying a 128MB file from the SD card to various folders on the device (including each one directly under the My Devices root), and the OS warned me each time that there was no space. This unit says it's got 16GB of flash in it, so I have no idea where it's hiding. Will ask the Nvidia guys again.
