    Default Error 18: WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!

    My sister has a Droid 2. She has been trying to download Angry Birds for her daughter when right when its about to install she gets this message: Install Error - Error 18.

    What does this mean? How can we prevent this from occurring?
    AND MORE IMPORTANTLY: How can we clear it up so she can download Angry Birds for my niece?

    Thank you.

    You are welcome, I think its because android although it supports it was never designed to install to the SD card so you will see this happen once inawhile.. im sure im going to get alot of Flack for what i just stated lol... anyhow im not sure if this will happen everytime , if it gives you the option to download to SD or internal choose internal and then try to move the app to the SD card later... Perhaps someone with a Droid 2 can chime in and let us know if there is an option to choose install location.

    Short answer, no. Your media files are most at home on the SD card.
