    Google Play Music

    ok, I did a search and came up empty. Does anyone know where Play Music puts the files when set to "make available offline"? I see that it is taking up space on the main storage, but I cant find the files. Is there anyway to specify a location to download them? This is going to turn into a problem if the system insists on putting everything on the main storage without the ability to put it elsewhere. Ideally Id like to put them on multiple SD cards, one for music, one for movies, etc etc.

    I don't use the service, but my guess would be in a folder in /sdcard/Android/data/com.google.android.music

    Offlined music will store in this folder. Also if in the settings you have temp cache streaming it will store here too, though i'm not sure for how long or limitations. The files are stored such as 4895.mp3 (this on my tab is Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy audiobook). You won't be able to search for the file names by artist or song or movie title or whatever. For vettekid you cannot change the directory where the offlined media is stored. You're better off setting up your SD cards separately on a PC.
